Reproducibility of clinician-friendly physical performance measures in individuals with obesity.

CONCLUSION: The clinician-friendly performance-based tests for individuals with obesity considered in this study appear legitimate for discriminative purposes, such as in cross-sectional studies. However, for longi-tudinal assessments (evaluative purposes), some measures should be used with greater caution due to limited agreement. Careful consideration should be given to the evaluation of physical performance in people with obesity, particularly in the context of conservative or surgical treatment for weight loss.

This study is based on the imagistic repertoire of three body forms/versions of the character Baymax from the Big Hero 6 animation (Walt Disney Pictures), and identifies the social imaginaries expressed in the animation movie language, which are considered here as a starting point to reflect upon the cultural representations and the biopower devices in society, in its consumerist logic, standardizations, discriminations and body controls, focusing on the processes that involve the corporeity of children and adolescents. The results show social imaginaries that reinforce the standardization of body aesthetics, creating cari...

Abstract Overweight among older adults has increased considerably, and resistance training (RT) is a very attractive intervention strategy for positive changes associated with its practice. The aim was to evaluate the impact of nutritional status on body composition and muscle strength of older women in a RT program. Forty-eight older women were divided into three groups: eutrophic (EUT, BMI ≤ 24.9 kg/m2), overweight (OVE, BMI between 25.0 and 29.9 kg/m2) and obese (OBE, BMI ≥ 30.0 kg/m2). RT was performed for 12 weeks, one set of 10 to 15 repetitions, eight exercises, three weekly sessions. Body composition assessme...
