    Muscle-Strengthening Exercise Links with Lower Odds for Depression in Adolescents

    Weijun Yu1,2, Jiangang Sun3, Ying Wu1,*, Si-Tong Chen4

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.23, No.2, pp. 277-288, 2021, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2021.016153

    Abstract Purpose: Physical activity is a well-recognized protective factor against depression in adolescents. As a component of physical activity, muscle strengthening exercise (MSE) is also viewed as a correlate associated with lower risks of depression in adults. However, little is known about the association in adolescents. This study aimed to explore the association between MSE and depression in a sample of Chinese adolescents. Method: A self-reported questionnaire was used for data collection including variables of MSE, depression (assessed by Children’s Depression Inventory) and selected sociodemographic factors (e.g., sex, grade, height and weight [for body mass index]). Generalized… More >
