Abstract

Continuous active physical activities may contribute to better aerobic fitness. ADHD
children tend to be hyperactive such as running, jumping, climbing and interrupting
in all activities and this factor hypothesized contributes to aerobic fitness. This study 'was
conducted to investigate aerobic fitness level between ADHD and normal male
children, and to compare the aerobic fitness level of ADHD and normal male
children according to the V02max normative. 35 ADHD and normal male children
were recruited in the study. The V02max parameter was measured for two different
categories of children which are ADHD and normal male children. The independent
variable (IV) representing by ADHD and normal children, and dependent variable
(DV) was V02max. Subjects were tested using 20 meter multi-stage shuttle run test
and levels of the test were recorded to identify V02max. Subjects aged ranges
between 7 to 10 years old. The results showed aerobic fitness level has no significant
difference between ADHD and normal male children. Meanwhile, V02max
normative also has no significant difference between both categories. Thus, null
hypotheses were accepted
