standing position, it is difficult to derive thigh and body posture from a hip-worn accelerometer signal. 21 This measurement limitation is important because sedentary behavior dimensions such as sit-to-stand postural transitions and time spent standing may influence metabolic biomarkers and health

acute, vigorous exercise testing at baseline may be contraindicated and in patients who are unfamiliar with exercise. Advances in our assessment and understanding of CVD biomarkers can allow for a safe and effective alternative to exercise testing and serve as an assessment tool to investigate the

adolescent population, also resulting in many injuries and even cardiac emergencies ( 6 , 27 ). Cardiac-specific biomarkers including cardiac troponin I (cTnI) and N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) are presumed to serologically identify cardiac myocyte damage and dysfunction ( 5 ). These

release dependent on the severity of stretch and stress ( 3 ). The lower detection limits of cTnT and cTnI assays have been greatly reduced in recent years ( 58 ) with new high-sensitivity assays available for both biomarkers. These assays can detect the 99th percentile with a coefficient of variation <10

However, they also reported no relationship of handgrip strength with CVD biomarkers including high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), triglycerides, and fasting glucose ( Xu & Hao, 2017 ), which is inconsistent with findings from previous studies

. Various biomarkers of inflammation and endothelial dysfunction have been identified and are altered in children with obesity compared with their normal weight counterparts ( 3 ). Given the high prevalence of obesity in children and adolescents, the management and/or prevention of obesity and its
