Sammanfattning (abstract):
The present study evaluated a nationwide exercise intervention with Football Fitness in a small-scale society. In all, 741 adult participants (20-72 yrs) were successfully recruited for Football Fitness training in local football clubs, corresponding to 2.1% of the adult population. A preintervention test battery including resting heart rate (RHR), blood pressure, and body mass measurements along with performance tests (Yo-Yo Intermittent Endurance level 1 (Yo-Yo IE1), the Arrowhead Agility Test, and the Flamingo Balance Test) were performed (n = 502). Training attendance (n = 310) was 1.6 +/- 0.2 sessions per week (range: 0.6-2.9), corresponding to 28.8 +/- 1.0 sessions during the 18 wk intervention period. After 18 wks mean arterial pressure (MAP) was -2.7 +/- 0.7 mmHg lower (p < 0.05; n = 151) with even greater (p < 0.05) reductions for those with baseline MAP values >99 mmHg (-5.6 +/- 1.5 mmHg; n = 50). RHR was lowered (p < 0.05) by 6 bpm after intervention (77 +/- 1 to 71 +/- 1 bpm). Yo-Yo IE1 performance increased by 41% (540 +/- 27 to 752 +/- 45 m), while agility and postural balance were improved (p < 0.05) by similar to 6 and similar to 45%, respectively. In conclusion, Football Fitness was shown to be a successful health-promoting nationwide training intervention for adult participants with an extraordinary recruitment, a high attendance rate, moderate adherence, high exercise intensity, and marked benefits in cardiovascular health profile and fitness.
