Sedentary behaviour is associated with deleterious health outcomes, which differ from those that can be attributed to a lack of moderate to vigorous physical activity. This has led to the field of "sedentary physiology", which may be considered as separate and distinct from exercise physiology. This paper gives an overview of this emerging area of research and highlights the ways that it differs from traditional exercise physiology. Definitions of key terms associated with the field of… Expand
Physiological Responses to Sedentary Behaviour
TLDR
Experimental evidence to date on the physiological effects of sedentary behaviours (prolonged sitting), including potential countermeasures aiming to address too much sitting as a health risk, are discussed. Expand
Relationship Between Sedentary Behavior and Cardiovascular Risk
TLDR
This review critically evaluates the literature pertaining to sedentary behavior and cardiovascular risk with an emphasis on studies published over the past year, and suggests possible interventions that may help reduce sedentarybehavior time. Expand
The emergence of sedentary behaviour physiology and its effects on the cardiometabolic profile in young and older adults
TLDR
It is postulated that engaging in light physical activity is an intervention that will successfully reduce levels of sedentary behaviour and may hence improve health markers of quality of life. Expand
Can the Epidemiologist Learn more from Sedentary Behaviour than from the Measurement of Physical Activity
Recent research suggests that there are biological mechanisms provoked by sedentary behaviours that result in health consequences even after accounting for the influence of an individual’s habitualExpand
Sedentary behaviour and health: mapping environmental and social contexts to underpin chronic disease prevention
TLDR
There is a need for a broader base of evidence on the likely health benefits of changing the relevant sedentary behaviours, particularly gathering evidence on underlying mechanisms and dose–response relationships, and a conceptual model is proposed within which this research agenda may be addressed. Expand
Sedentary Lifestyle: Health Implications
TLDR
It is concluded that individuals, groups and communities should make concerted efforts to engage in physical activities, modify their dietary habits and avoid other risky behaviours that affect their health negatively. Expand
Examining the relationship between exercise and sedentary behaviour among cardiac rehabilitation patients to inform intervention strategies
Prolonged time in sedentary behaviours is associated with cardio-metabolic disease risk and mortality in adult populations. Yet, the association between sedentary behaviour and exercise participationExpand
Sedentary behaviour and physical activity in adults: measurement and behaviour change
The increasing evidence of associations between sedentary behaviour and low levels of physical activity in adults and both immediate and long term health implications is of public health concern.Expand
Too Much Sitting and Cardio-Metabolic Risk: An Update of Epidemiological Evidence
TLDR
Overall, a compelling case for sitting reduction to be included in clinical preventive advice as a key component of ‘active living,’ where adults and children are encouraged to ‘move more and sit less’ across different settings and locations throughout the day is identified. Expand
Adjustment for physical activity in studies of sedentary behaviour
TLDR
The analytical assumptions underlying adjustment for PA in studies of sedentary behaviour and a given outcome are discussed, and the implications for associations between SB and health are considered. Expand

Too little exercise and too much sitting: Inactivity physiology and the need for new recommendations on sedentary behavior
TLDR
It is time to consider excessive sitting a serious health hazard, with the potential for ultimately giving consideration to the inclusion of too much sitting (or too few breaks from sitting) in physical activity and health guidelines. Expand
Health risks, correlates, and interventions to reduce sedentary behavior in young people.
TLDR
A growing body of evidence supports the development of public health recommendations to limit the time spent in screen-based behaviors and more research is needed to examine the prospective and experimental evidence of associations between overall sedentary time and health. Expand
Too much sitting: a novel and important predictor of chronic disease risk?
TLDR
A brief overview of recent evidence for the distinct relationships between ‘too much sitting’ and biomarkers of metabolic health and, thus, with increased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other prevalent chronic health problems is provided. Expand
Physical activity and sedentary behavior: a population-based study of barriers, enjoyment, and preference.
The associations of physical activity and sedentary behavior with barriers, enjoyment, and preferences were examined in a population-based mail survey of 1,332 adults. Respondents reporting highExpand
'Too Much Sitting' and Metabolic Risk— Has Modern Technology Caught Up with Us?
TLDR
Evidence is presented that sedentary behaviour (too much sitting) is an important stand-alone component of the physical activity and health equation, particularly in relation to cardio-metabolic risk, and whether it is now time to consider public health and clinical guidelines on reducing prolonged sitting time that are in addition to those promoting regular participation in physical activity.

Environmental Determinants of Physical Activity and Sedentary Behavior
TLDR
Past research has emphasized psychosocial determinants of physical activity, but progress will require more focus on understanding sedentary behaviors and the role of environmental determinants. Expand
Advances in physical activity monitoring and lifestyle interventions in obesity: a review
TLDR
Recent advances in activity-monitoring technology have the potential to support the design of response-dependent physical activity recommendations that are needed to generate effective and personalized lifestyle interventions for health promotion. Expand
Role of Low Energy Expenditure and Sitting in Obesity, Metabolic Syndrome, Type 2 Diabetes, and Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
There is an emergence of inactivity physiology studies beginning to raise a new concern with potentially major clinical and public health significance: the average nonexercising person may become even more metabolically unfit in the coming years if they sit too much, thereby limiting the normally high volume of intermittent nonexercise physical activity in everyday life. Expand
The prevalence of sedentary behaviours and physical activity in Hungarian youth.
TLDR
This study provides the first comprehensive description of sedentary behavioural prevalence in Hungarian youth, with gender differences different to some other countries, with girls reporting more computer game use and boys more sitting and talking, but these may reflect cultural and reporting differences. Expand
Incidental movement, lifestyle-embedded activity and sleep: new frontiers in physical activity assessment.
TLDR
The potential impact of incidental (non-exercise or non-purposeful) physical activity and lifestyle-embedded activities (chores and incidental walking) upon TEE and indicators of health are reviewed and suggested. Expand
