Presented by Benjamin D. Boudreaux, PhD
The aim of this course is to introduce the concept of the 24-hour movement paradigm, consider the impact of sedentary time on health, and take away key factors of the movement prescription to reduce sedentary behavior.
Moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity has an established preventive role in cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and some cancers. However, recent evidence suggests that sedentary time also negatively impacts cardiovascular and metabolic effects, regardless of whether adults meet physical activity guidelines.
In this course, we present some of the emerging evidence for the negative effects of sedentary behavior, noting that such behavior is extremely common and likely to increase with further technological innovation.
It is vital we consider the 24-hour movement paradigm and the impact of sedentary time on health, potentially including recommendations about too much sedentary time — or too few breaks from sedentary time — in physical activity and health guidelines.
By the end of this course learners will be able to:
- Recall the 24-hour movement paradigm.
- Recognize the impact of sedentary time on health.
- Identify key factors of the prescription for sedentary behavior.
