Physical comfort during (a) short- and (b) long-duration sessions in boys and girls. 1SDRT = short-duration rest, SDEX = short-duration exercise, LDRT = long-duration rest, LDEX = long-duration exercise. 2 Change from baseline physical comfort increased over time during SD (a) (p = 0.036), but not LD (b) (p = 0.26) sessions. Neither treatment (p = 0.49), nor sex (p = 0.58) was a factor affecting physical comfort during SD sessions. Physical comfort during LD sessions was affected by treatment (p < 0.0001), but not sex (p = 0.73), and there was a significant treatment × sex interaction (p = 0.0007). 3Test meals began at 45 min (a) and 75 min (b).
