Day-dependent step-count patterns and their persistence over 3 years in 8-10-year-old children: The LOOK project
Background: Physical activity in children is known to be generally lower at weekends but whether systematic day-to-day differences exist throughout the week is unclear. Aim: To determine if weekly patterns of pedometer-assessed physical activity (PPA) exist in elementary school-aged Australian boys and girls and whether they persist over 3 years.
