Project: Research Project

Project Details


To determine the impact of a sedentary behavior interruption program on cardiometabolic risk factors in university young adults.


Heart rate variability, interruption of sedentary behavior, cardiometabolic risk factors, young adult, college student.

Commitments / Obligations

Taking into account the proposed research objectives, it is expected to design a sedentary behavior interruption program in the curricular field that generates adherence and an impact on variables related to cardio-metabolic risk factors such as blood glucose levels, cholesterol and triglycerides, as well as lifestyle, arterial function, heart rate variability, and physical activity and sedentary behavior itself.

In this sense, it is proposed that the results of this work will be presented in 3 indicators of new knowledge that contemplates I) the submission of a scientific article in an indexed journal, II) construction and dissemination of a primer with the description of the program for its implementation and recommendations to maintain adherence, III) Awareness workshop on the importance of interrupting sedentary time; in addition to submitting a poster to be presented at an international congress related to physical activity and risk factors for health.

Therefore, it is expected that these results continue to contribute to the consolidation of the seedbed in these areas of work and that at the same time they can contribute to university well-being.
