Understanding the Australian ‘Weekend Warrior’ physical activity pattern and its health consequences in Australian women
The role of physical activity (PA) in the prevention and management of non-communicable diseases is well established. However, it remains unclear whether different patterns of duration, frequency and intensity of activity are critical for the prevention of different conditions. The aim of this project is to understand the ‘weekend warrior’ physical activity pattern and its health consequences in Australian women. This study will improve knowledge and understanding of the optimal patterns of PA for improved health in women. The findings of this study can be used to inform the development of strategies for increasing PA among women and thereby help to prevent inactivity-related chronic health problems.
