  • Purpose: In this study, we intend to investigate the condition of the face and body that we want to improve for customers who use manipulative therapy based on kinesiology in the beauty shop. The purpose of this study is to analyze the effect of Body Image Recognition and its sub-factors on Appearance Management Behaviors in order to obtain basic data for vitalization of the beauty industry. Method: The subjects of this study were customers who use manipulative therapy based on kinesiology in the beauty shop, and to validate the research issue, 219 copies of online. Empirical statistical analysis was performed using SPSS 25.0 program, and chi-squared test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson’s correlation, simple regression analysis, and multiple regression analysis methods were used. Results: The results of the analysis performed are as follows: First, the parts of the face that we want to improve by gender are as follows. Men wanted the wrinkles around the eyes to be improved, and women wanted the nasolabial folds to look younger(χ2=28.121, p<.001). As for the parts of the body that they want to be improved, they hoped for changes in the abdomen and waist at all age groups, and those in their 20s and 40s wanted the lower body and calves to be improved, and those in their 50s and older wanted beautiful improvements in the clavicle and back neck line(χ2 =22.033, p<.05). Second, women were perceived to be healthier than men(t=-2.961, p<.01), but their Self-body Image Recognition level was lower(t=3.247, p<.01). Third, Body Image Recognition was found to have a positive effect on Appearance Management Behavior(β=.381, p<.001). Specifically, it was found that the higher the level of Health Awareness(β=.207, p<.01) and Self-body Image Recognition(β=.193, p<.01), the higher the Appearance Management Behavior. Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, as each gender and age group have different desires to improve with manual therapy, it is necessary to develop a differentiated program. And these results suggest that there is a high possibility that it has a positive effect on the appearance of customers and that various levels of management behavior lead to consumption of beauty and health services.

  • Purpose: With the national emphasis on the high-quality development of sports industry and the cultivation of new cultural formats and consumption patterns, sports consumption of college student has become a hot topic of academic attention, and a lot of research has been carried out. In order to fully understand the research status of sports consumption of college student in China, this study conducted scientific econometric statistics on related researches in the past 20 years, aiming to analyze the hot spots and trend evolution of sports consumption of college students. Method: In this paper, 487 valid samples were obtained by searching the literature related to college student sports consumption collected by CNKI from 2001 to 2021. CiteSpace was used to conduct visualized analysis, and through the collation of knowledge map, it revealed the hot spots and trend evolution of Chinese collegiate student sports consumption. Results: The results of descriptive statistical analysis from literatures for this study showed that the time distribution characteristics of Chinese collegiate student who consume sport products could be divided into four stages: 1)steady growth stage from 2001 to 2005, 2)rapid development stage from 2006 to 2008, 3)ups and downs stage from 2009 to 2014, and 4)slow decline stage from 2015 to 2021. These literatures were mainly studied by colleges and universities, involving physical education, pedagogy, economics. The research hotspots analysis showed that the main keywords of Chinese collegiate student sports consumption were sports consumption, college students, current situation, influencing factors, sports consumption behavior, college student sports consumption, female college students, consumption consciousness, sports consumption structure and motivation. The results of emerging trend analysis showed that the research on sports consumption of collegiate student in China could be divided into four development stages: it mainly involved the definition and interpretation of sports consumption of college students, the investigation of the current situation in different regions, the analysis of influencing factors and the proposal of consumption countermeasures from 2001 to 2008. The research from 2009 to 2014 mainly included sports consumption consciousness and sports consumption behavior. From 2015 to 2019, sports and fitness consumption and sports consumption motivation were mainly discussed. After 2019, due to the short period of time and the gradual maturity of research in this field, the research mainly focused on the comprehensive discussion of sports consumption of collegiate students. Conclusions: As the data used for this study were only collected from CNKI literature, there are limitations in obtaining data which were the previous literature. In addition, due to the strict limitation of keywords in the literature search process, it may lead to the omission of sport consumption contents of college student in other articles. Therefore, it is hoped that these problems can be properly solved in the future scientometrics researches.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to provide the basic data for the fatty acid metabolism research by analyzing the expressions of body weight, blood components(TG, FFA, Glucose) and rat skeletal muscle’s LPL mRNA after 5 weeks of the saturated and unsaturated fatty acids intake. Method: For this experiment, 30 rats were divided into the control group(CON), saturated fat intake group(BT) and the unsaturated fat intake group(SF) with 10 rats allocated each, and 2 rats each received a different diet inside the breeding cage. Their body weight was measured before meals and at the interval of 1 week, and after ingestion of each group's diet for 5 weeks, anesthetic was injected and slaughtered, and blood sampling was performed to analyze the blood components. Soleus muscles were extracted and were stored frozen, then analyzed using the Real Time PCR in order to analyze the expressions of the skeletal muscles LPL mRNA. For the statistical processing of the study, the mean and standard deviation of all items were calculated using the SPSS 18.00 Package, and the one-way repeated ANOVA was performed to examine and understand the changes in the blood components and LPL mRNA according to each group. The statistical significance level was set to p<.05. Results: After 5 weeks of the dietary intake, all groups demonstrated increases in their weight as the dietary intake period have elapsed. The differences in the TG concentration according to the dietary intake in blood components turned out to be significantly lower for the BT group(p<0.05) and the SF group(p<0.001) than for the CON group, and also for SF group compared to the BT group in terms of the TG concentration being significantly higher. There turned out to be no significant difference for the FFA concentration, and the difference in the glucose concentration turned out to be significantly higher for the SF group than for the BT group. As for the LPL mRNA expressions, there turned out to be no significant difference between the groups in terms of the difference in GAPDH mRNA expression according to the dietary intake, and the difference in the LPL mRNA expressions for the BT group(p<0.001) and the SF group(p <0.01), the LPL mRNA expression turned out to be significantly higher. Conclusion: As a result of gathering the study results, the unsaturated fat intake rather than the saturated fat intake brought about the effective improvement of the triglyceride concentration and the increases in the LPL mRNA expression when structuring the dietary intake for the prevention of adult diseases related to obesity and arteriosclerosis, it is thought that the lipolysis is facilitated.

  • Purpose: Weight training is a training method that can effectively increase muscle strength and anaerobic exercise capacity. The muscles of the lower extremities, which have been trained through lower body exercises, are a particularly important group of muscles for daily physical and sporting activities. The purpose of this study was to investigate the difference squat loading of the lower extremity joints movement pattern between trained versus un-trained individuals. Method: A total of 20 physically healthy individuals 10 trained subjects(age: 28.71±2.41 yrs, height: 178.92± 4.25 cm, weight: 81.72±4.98 kg) and 10 un-trained subjects(age: 29.42±3.67 yrs, height: 176.62±3.8 cm, weight: 80.2±5.11 kg) participated in this study. The un-trained subjects who had not performed regular resistance exercise for at least the past 1 year, and had no experience performing squat movements were selected. The trained group was selected as subjects who had regularly performed resistance strength training for at least 3 years. The three-dimensional motion analysis system, force plate and an wireless electromyography system were synchronized and used for measurement. Results: The results of this study showed that there was difference between the trained group and the un-trained group and the trained group showed the pattern of knee varus and un-trained group showed the valgus angle(Knee valgus) displacement. Also, Statistically significant differences appeared in knee forward movement and the trained group(5cm) showed less than the un-trained group(11cm). In the case of MLSI(Medial-Lateral Stability Index), the untrained group showed a higher stability index than the trained group. It was found that the stability index of the trained and untrained groups increased as the body weight increased. Conclusion: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of various squat loads on lower extremity movement patterns and stability index during squat exercise between trained and untrained individuals. The subjects of the study were 10 trainees who regularly squat for 3 years and 10 non-trainers who practiced squats irregularly throughout their lives. As a result of the experiment, it was confirmed that the untrained group had greater knee forward movement and a smaller hip flexion angle than the trained group. In the stability index, it was confirmed that the untrained group showed a higher stability index than the trained group. In future studies, it is considered necessary to study the improvement of squat motion in untrained individuals. It is important to check for changes in movement patterns after training.
