THE EFFECTS OF EXERCISE ON ACADEMIC AND COGNITIVE PERFORMANCE IN ATHLETES
Younger generations are more sedentary across the world, compared to prior generations. Human growth and development are positively influenced by physical exercise, which has both physiological and psychological advantages. For the purpose of this research, 80 Italian elementary (i.e. primary) school students were surveyed, aged 11.0 0.3 years, with a height of 1.46 0.09 m, and a weight of 39.5 7.9 kg. By studying possible connections between test results and school marks, and by revealing possible reciprocal linkages between socio-demographics, family environment, lifestyle (including physical activity), and school performance information using a structural modelling technique, this goal was met It was determined that each child's lower and upper limb muscular strength as well as running speed and agility were evaluated. Test scores were correlated with school achievement using Pearson's correlation. According to our research, agility was linked to higher scores in languages such as Italian, German, and English as well as scores in the arts such as music and sports. Mathematics, sports, and technology marks were all associated with sprint. Except for the connections between sports marks and physical tests, all of the correlation coefficients were modest (strong correlation). We observed that socio-demographics and lifestyle had a substantial influence on school performance from the structural model. In instance, lifestyle was found to totally buffer the influence of the home setting on educational success. Providing chances for physical activity in schools and at home is a vital part of enhancing children's health and well-being.
