Lv Wan Gang, Zhou Xue Jun, Rahmat Hidayat


Purpose: There are two purposes in this study (1) To identify whether self-determination factors can influence physical activity behavior in different situations, before, during, and after lockdown. (2) whether self-determination factors can affect the frequency of physical activity, before, during and after lockdown. Method : BPAQ and BREQ-2 to 2.326 people China n= 607 Indonesia n= 1017 Malaysia n= 341 Philipina n= 127 Vietnam n= 234. Result : BPAQ Intensity of Physical Activity, the highest percentage of LIT in during lockdown 54.37%. MIT in after lockdown 56.57%. HIT in before lockdown 24.99%. Duration of Physical Activity, the highest percentage before lockdown 2-3 hours 33.16%. During lockdown 1-2 hours 49.75%. After lockdown 1-2 hours 45.99%. Physical Activity in One Week, the highest percentage before lockdown 2-3 times 41.04%. During lockdown 3-4 times 39.42%. After lockdown 3-4 times 38.14%. BREQ-2 Before lockdown Amotivation 0.25, External 1.49, Introjected 1.84, Identified 3.17, Intrinsic 3.50. During lockdown Amotivation 0.13, External 1.68, Introjected 2.37, Identified 3.34, Intrinsic 3.22. After lockdown Amotivation 0.19, External 1.65, Introjected 2.31, Identified 3.35, Intrinsic 3.36. Conclusion : Self-determination factors have an effect on physical activity behavior and therefore the frequency of physical activity in several things, before, during, and after lockdown.
