Abstract

Regular vigorous physical activity (PA) and high levels of physical fitness (PF) confer health benefits. Conversely, sedentary time is a risk factor for chronic illness, independent of PA. We evaluated associations between self-reported PA, sedentary time, and objective PF measures in military Service members. Cross-sectional study including 10,105 Air Force Millennium Cohort participants with a valid physical fitness assessment (PFA). Linear regression assessed associations between self-report PA, screen time, and usual activity and abdominal circumference (AC) and VO2 max; logistic regression was used for PFA failure. We stratified by age and sex. Men who self-reported high versus low levels of PA had greater AC (19-29 years: β=0.23in., 95% CI 0.07, 0.39; 30-39 years: β=0.45in., 95% CI 0.17, 0.72). High versus low self-reported PA was also associated with greater VO2Max (β=:0.81-1.41mL/kg/min). Self-reported strength training for ≥2days/week was associated with greater VO2Max in 19-29year old men (β=0.84mL/kg/min, 95% CI 0.09, 0.60) and 30-39year old women (β=0.74mL/kg/min, 95% CI 0.02, 1.46). For younger men and women,<2h of screen time/day was associated with greater VO2Max (Males 19-29years: β=0.23mL/kg/min, 95% CI 0.44, 1.26; Females 19-29years: β=0.83mL/kg/min, 95% CI 0.25, 1.42). PA was not associated with PFA failure, while screen time was (Males OR: 0.32-0.65, 95% CI 0.17-0.92, p<0.001-0.016). Self-reported PA and screen time were associated with some objective PF measures, including VO2Max and AC. However, screen time alone was associated with PFA failure.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 January 2019.
All research outputs
#3,748,945
of 12,799,521 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport
#959
of 1,879 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#105,264
of 276,640 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport
#84
of 126 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,799,521 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,879 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 12.2. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 276,640 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 126 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
