The article that I read was about the relationship between percentage of VO2 max and type of physical activity in obese and non-obese children. The article was out of The Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness and written by Lazzer, Boirie, Bitar, Petit, Meyer, and Vermorel. The authors provided substantial information about the problem of obesity among children nowadays, as well as the causes for this pattern. The lack of physical activity was the main cause of obesity in children and adolescents, and that is their primary reason for conducting the study. They clearly state their purposes of 1) determine VO2 in obese and non obese adolescents during various activities in standard conditions and 2) find the time devoted to various physical activities and percentages of VO2 max in free-living conditions. While they gave good rationale for their study and provided a clear purpose, the authors really failed to make a hypothesis to their study. The authors give a very detailed explanation of their methods and materials.
