Adequate motor coordination ability is not only a key factor in children’s general development ( D’Hondt et al., 2013 ); it is also associated with health-related gains ( Chagas & Batista, 2017 ). Previous research has shown motor coordination skills to be negatively associated with body fat

assessment of percentage of body fat (%BF), allows identifying body composition imbalances that can affect athletes’ performance and overall health and well-being during growth ( 1 ). Adolescents may develop compulsive weight loss behaviors to reach a perceived “ideal” body weight for competition ( 7

The assessment of percentage of body fat (%BF) is often performed in sport clubs to monitor body composition changes in the athletes during the season due to its relationship with physical fitness and performance ( Avlonitou et al., 1997 ). Anthropometry, bioelectrical impedance analysis, dual

In a recent study, we showed that prior exercise increased whole-body fat oxidation by approximately 75% in a second exercise bout ( Andersson Hall et al., 2016 ). The

Few studies have investigated the relationship of physical activity with the expression of NGF and BDNF in children

Percent body fat (BF%), fat mass (FM, kg), and lean body mass (LBM, kg) were determined using the BodPod whole-body air-displacement plethysmography method (Life Measurement
