Physical activity, physical fitness and cardiovascular disease risk factors in Norwegian children and adolescents : the Physical Activity among Norwegian Children Study
MetadataShow full item record
There is a scarcity of data on the current levels and secular trends in physical activity, physical fitness, and their relationship with key risk factors for diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Thus, the overall main objectives were: 1) to describe physical activity, physical fitness and CVD risk factor levels and 2) to examine the independent associations of muscle fitness and aerobic fitness with clustered CVD risk in 9- and 15-year-old Norwegians.Paper I: Kolle E, Steene-Johannessen J, Andersen LB, Anderssen SA.
