Stand up for your health: Is it time to rethink the physical activity paradigm?

Yates, Thomas and Wilmot, Emma G. and Khunti, Kamlesh and Biddle, Stuart ORCID: and Gorely, Trish and Davies, Melanie J. (2011) Stand up for your health: Is it time to rethink the physical activity paradigm? Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice, 93 (2). pp. 292-294. ISSN 0168-8227


The area of physical activity and health research has been energised by the creation of a new paradigm: sedentary behaviour. Sedentary behaviour and physical activity are increasingly viewed as different constructs with independent effects on the disease process. The creation of the new sedentary behaviour paradigm is likely to have a significant impact on research and interventions aimed at the prevention and management of diabetes in the future. This article highlights the key concepts and implications of this new paradigm. © 2011 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
