  1. “Health and Physical Activity in children – new knowledge and new directions” Karsten Froberg, Head of RICH Center Department of Sports Science & ClinicalBiomechanics University of Southern Denmark

  2. Main objectives • Understandingthe physical and social benefits of physicalactivity and fitness • Developingbettermethods for measuring PA and health determinants • 25 employes – incuding 14 PhD students • 185 scientificpublications in 5 years Supported by the TrygFonden Foundation, The Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation, The Health Foundation, The Heart Foundation, The Nordea Foundation, Team Denmark, The IMK Foundation, The Region of Southern Denmark, The Foundation of BUPL (Union for Pedagogues), the Communities of Vejle and Odense and the University of Southern Denmark with around 7 million Euro in the last 5 years. ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  3. HEALTHAND LIFESTYLE Risk factors underlying Chronic Deseases are partly nonmodifiable, (age, sex, genetic susceptibility), and partly modifiable, related to biological factors (overweight, hypertension, dyslipidemias, hyperinsulinemia), and particularly to lifestyle (tobacco, diet, alcohol use and physical (in)activity). It is on the latter that public health policies are mainly based, focusing on education to healthy lifestyle at all ages and particularly from early childhood. ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  4. The human genome Sedentary lifestyle: Does not maintain required metabolic demands and muscle loading Human genome: evolved to support a physically active lifestyle Genome unchanged in past 10,000 years Result in: Insulin resistance in skeletal muscles Weak skeletal muscles Coronary artery disease Hypertension Some cancers Type 2 diabetes Depression Physical frailty Osteoporosis Booth et al, 2002 ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  13. Cardiorespiratory fitness is strongly associated to clustering of CVD risk factors in children and youth. - The findings were fairly similar between countries (in different geographical regions) and between sex and age groups. Anderssen et.al. EurJ CardiovascPrevRehabil. 2007 Aug;14(4):526-31 ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

Diabetologia, 2007;50:1832-40) ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  16. CONCLUSIONS/INTERPRETATION: • PA and CRF are separately and independently associated with individual and clustered metabolic risk factors in children. • The association between CRF and clustered risk is partly mediated or confounded by adiposity • The association between activity and clustered risk is independent of adiposity. • The results suggest that fitness and activity affect metabolic risk through different pathways ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  19. The results showed that muscle fitness and cardiorespiratory fitness were independently associated with metabolic risk in youth. Steene-Johannessen J et.al. Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2009 Jul;41(7):1361-7 ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  24. Interpretation • Current guidelines of at least 1 hour per day of physical activity of at least moderate intensity may be an underestimation of the activity necessary to prevent clustering of CVD risk factors in children. ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  25. ROC curve for boys Clinical Cutpoints for CV Fitness • Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) • AdegboyeAR et.al.

  26. New prospective or longitudinal data Aim - To examine the association of isometric trunk muscle strength in youth with cardiovascular risk factors in young adulthood Aim -To examine the independent and combined association of isometric trunk muscle strength and cardiorespiratory fitness in youth with indices of insulin resistance and beta-cell function in young adulthood among Danish youth from EYHS.

  28. Methods Isometric muscle strength during maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) of abdominal and back muscles using a strain-gauge dynamometer Cardiorespiratoryfitness (CRP) • High test-retest reliability of these particular isometric strength measures (intraclass correlation coefficient>0.9) (Andersen et al. 1987, Essendrop et al. 2001) • Moderate- to strong correlation between isometric- and dynamic muscle strength(Juneja et al. 2010) Progressive maximal ergometer bicycle test (r=0.9 with VÓ2-max assessed directly, highly reproducible) Validation study used to estimate ml O2/min based on max watts at peak workload (Riddoch C et.al. Journal of Physical Activity and Health, 2005, 2, 115-129) Normalized to body mass (kg) ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  29. Methods Analytical strategy: Prospective analysis, multiple linear regression analysis including n=332 with complete data Waist circumference BMI Youth isometric muscle strength of the abdomen and back CVD risk factors in young adulthood Body mass index Waist circumference BP Triglycerides HDL Fasting glucose Age Gender Baseline levels of CVD risk factor Recruitment period Parental educational level Smoking status Family history of CVD Frequency of intake of soft drinks Frequency of intake of fruit and vegetables Television viewing Cardiorespiratory fitness ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  30. Results Multivariable adjusted incl. cardiorespiratory fitness MV adjustment for: Age at baseline, follow-up time, sex and recruitment period, TV watching, parental education level, smoking status, intake of soft drinks, fruit and vegetable intake and family history of CVD, cardiorespiratory fitness ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  31. Results Adjusted for: Age at baseline, follow-up time, sex and recruitment period, TV watching, parental education level, smoking status, intake of soft drinks, fruit and vegetable intake and family history of CVD, and cardiorespiratory fitness ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  32. Results Insulin sensitivity Multivariable adjustment (MV). Baseline levels of risk factor, age, sex, and recruitment period, television viewing, parental education level, smoking status, intake of soft drinks, fruit and vegetable intake, and family history of diabetes. ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  33. Conclusions • Greater isometric muscle strength of the abdomen and back in youth was associated with lower levels of CVD risk factors in young adulthood independent of cardiorespiratory fitness and other important determinant of CVD risk • Increasing muscle strength and Cardio-Respiratory Fitness should be targets in youth prevention strategies of insulin resistance and β-cell dysfunction. • Prolonged TV- and total screen time viewing during leisure time in adolescence, and increases in these behaviors, are associated with unfavorable levels of several cardiovascular risk factors in young adulthood. ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

  34. Newestarticles Screen time viewing behaviors and isometrictrunkmusclestrength in youth. Grøntved A, et.al. Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2013 Oct;45(10) CONCLUSIONS Screen time use was inversely associated with isometric trunk muscle strength independent of CRF and other confounding factors Associations between objectly measured physical activity intensity in childhood (9-10 y) and measures of subclinical cardiovascular disease in adolescence (15-16 y): prospective observations from the European Youth Heart Study. Ried-Larsen M et.al. BrJ Sports Med. 2013 Apr 13. [Epubahead of print] CONCLUSIONS A high mean exposure to, or changes in, minutes spent at higher PA intensities across childhood was not associated to thicknessor stiffness in the carotid arteries in adolescence. But a high volume of vigorous PA across childhood is independently associated with lower metabolic cardio-vascular disease risk in adolescence. Moderate and vigorous physical activity from adolescence to adulthood and subclinical atherosclerosis in adulthood: prospective observations from the European Youth Heart Study.Ried-Larsen M et.al. BrJ Sports Med. 2013 Apr 13. [Epubahead of print] CONCLUSIONS: High mean exposure to moderate-and-vigorous PA levels and increases herein were independently associated with lower levels of carotid arterial stiffness in adulthood ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013

Most observational studies suggested an inverse relationship between the peripheral BDNF level and habitual physical activity or cardiorespiratory fitness. More research is needed to confirm the findings from the observational studies. ScandJ Med Sci Sports. 2013 Apr 22. [Epub ahead of print] ENSSEE, Groningen, October 2013
