Identifying children with exercise deficit disorder early in life and prescribing effective exercise interventions to prevent the cascade of adverse health outcomes later in life is needed to raise public awareness and focus on primary prevention. In this lecture, participants will learn about the impact of a sedentary lifestyle during childhood on life-long pathological processes and the importance of implementing integrated neuromuscular training into the physical education curriculum and sports training programs.
