Somatotype is More Interactive with Strength than Fat Mass and Physical Activity in Peripubertal Children The purpose of this study was to analyse the interaction between somatotype, body fat and physical activity in prepubescent children. This was a cross-sectional study design involving 312 children (160 girls, 152 boys) aged between 10 and 11.5 years old (10.8 ± 0.4 years old). Evaluation of body composition was done determining body mass index and body fat by means of skin-fold measurements…

The relationship between the exercise capacity and somatotype components, body composition, and quadriceps strength in individuals with coronary artery disease

TLDR
The results suggest that exercise capacity in individuals with CAD is directly associated with somatotype components, anthropometry/ body composition elements, and quadriceps strength.

The influence of somatotype on anaerobic performance

TLDR
Around one third of strength performance is predicted by somatotype-assessed physique in physically active males, which could have important implications for the identification of those predisposed to perform well in sports containing strength-based movements and prescription of training programmes.

Relationship between skeletal age , hormonal markers and physical capacity in adolescents

TLDR
It is concluded that maturation, testosterone and oestradiol levels play an important role in the physical aspects and performance of motor skills of adolescents, especially in upper limb force which was more related to the maturation obtained by skeletal age of males and females.

Behavioral Correlates of Muscular Fitness in Children and Adolescents: A Systematic Review

TLDR
The available evidence supports a link between MF and physical activity, particularly for vigorous intensity activity and organized sports participation, and there is limited support for an association with sedentary behaviors.

Multilevel modelling of somatotype components: the Portuguese sibling study on growth, fitness, lifestyle and health

TLDR
These results highlight the significant familial effects on somatotype and the complexity of the role of familial resemblance in explaining variance in somatotypes.

Endomorphs Show Higher Postural Sway Than Other Somatotypes Subjects

TLDR
The mesomorph subjects had a higher degree of static and dynamic balance control, while a lower degree of balance control was found among endomorph subjects, especially when standing on the unlocked balance platform with both eyes open and eyes closed.

The adolescent basketball player: the importance of some anthropometric characteristics for speed, resistance, power and agility

Basketball is a very popular sporting activity requiring a variety of movements. During this physiologically intermittent sporting activity in fact, athletes must cover 4500 meters and must run,

Change and Stability in Sibling Resemblance in Obesity Markers: The Portuguese Sibling Study on Growth, Fitness, Lifestyle, and Health

TLDR
Longitudinal individual tracking and sibling resemblance for obesity markers were found, yet, different trajectories were also identified depending on the marker and sib type.

Somatotype Characteristics of School Boys Aged Six to Eleven Years from Nepal

TLDR
The changes of body type from endomorphic mesomorph into balanced mesomorph and ultimately into ect mesomorph supported the trend of somatotype change with age.

Age differences in growth and physical abilities in trained and untrained girls 10–17 years of age

TLDR
The actively training girls had higher physical abilities at all ages from 10–17, and differences in mean scores of most motor abilities were minimal or reduced significantly at 13–14 years in nonactive girls, but were significant in active girls.

Physical fitness and physical activity in obese and nonobese Flemish youth.

TLDR
Results show that obese subjects had poorer performances on weight-bearing tasks, but did not have lower scores on all fitness components, and suggest that weight- bearing activities should be limited at the start of an intervention with obese participants.

Physical Performance and School Physical Education in Overweight Spanish Children

TLDR
Overweight children had poorer results on weight-bearing tasks and the good results in static strength, coordination and speed of limb movements in overweight children should be considered in the promotion of physical activity programs for overweight children.

Associations of physical activity with muscular fitness in adolescents

TLDR
Findings suggest that vigorous activity may be associated with indicators of MF in adolescents, and that resistance training exercise is associated with the increase of MF.

Overweight/obesity and physical fitness among children and adolescents.

TLDR
Higher values of body mass index were associated with declines in physical fitness, independent of age, among obese children and adolescents.

Relation between anthropometric somatotype and motor performance in prepubescent and pubescent Czech children

The A. examined the relations between the components of anthropometric somatotype and motor performance in boys and girls (8-9 and 12-13 years old) with considerably above-average and considerably

[Relationship between overweight, physical activity and physical fitness in school-aged boys in Bogotá Colombia].

TLDR
The final conclusion was that the prevalence of overweight was high in this population of school-aged boys and there was a significant relationship between poor physical fitness, low levels of physical activity, and overweight.

Percentile Values for Muscular Strength Field Tests in Children Aged 6 to 17 Years: Influence of Weight Status

TLDR
Both underweight and normalweight children and adolescents had significantly higher performance than their overweight and obese counterparts in the lower-body explosive strength tests and in the push ups test in boys and bent arm hang test in both boys and girls.

Physical fitness in adolescents with normal weight and overweight

TLDR
OW had the most negative association with cardiorespiratory and muscle endurance, and explosive power tests and the association between PA and fitness was stronger than that between OW and fitness.

Health‐related fitness in adolescents: underweight, and not only overweight, as an influencing factor. The AVENA study

TLDR
Not only overweight and obesity but also underweight seem to be determinants of health‐related fitness in adolescents, and the associations could be related to differences in body composition.
