Purpose: approaches to control over limits of students body mass range and obesity prophylaxis through their physical condition improvement are offered. Material: in the research 100 boy students, divided into 2 equal groups (experimental and control) participated. Their age was - 19-20 years. In the research we used methodic of control over maximal admissible body mass. Strength was registered by quantity of chin ups. Endurance was assessed by time of 3000 meters’ distance run. Quickness was assessed by time of 100 meters’ distance run. Besides, we considered the quantity of missed physical culture lessons. Results: it was found that for successful body weigh reduction students have to significantly increase everyday motor functioning. It was also found that insignificant quantity of missed physical culture lessons can not noticeably influence on students physical condition. At the end of the researches tests showed some increment of strength and quickness and confident increase of endurance in experimental group students. Conclusions: implementation of compulsory body mass control methodic in students’ physical education will facilitated overcoming global threats for youth’s health: obesity and immobile way of life.
