Abstract

During adolescence , the number of girls achieving the recommended levels of physical activity (PA) for health decreases significantly and the temporal alignment of this decline in PA with the onset of maturation warrants investigation. The aim of this study was to adopt a longitudinal design to examine the effect of age, relative and absolute maturation, body size and composition on changes in PA in adolescent girls.
