Indicated factors of physical development, physical readiness, functional condition and efficiency of female students in the process of adaptation to training

Keywords: physical development, physical readiness, functional state, adaptation


Purpose: to determine indicated factors of physical development, physical readiness, functional condition and efficiency of female students in the process of adaptation to learning. Material: it was examined female students at the beginning of the first and second year of training (n = 342, age 18-20 years). The investigation was conducted on 10 indicators of physical development, 9 indicators of physical preparedness and 13 indicators of functional status and performance. Results: It is established that during the first year of study takes place changes in the factors of the physical development of students, such as: increase of body weight, mass-growth index, muscular strength of the right hand. From the factors of physical readiness: increase the time of the visibility on the crossbar and the number of push-ups from the floor; decreases the length of the jump from the place. From the factors of the functional state: the frequency of breathing and the Genci test increase; decrease the coefficient of circulatory efficiency, endurance factor and systolic blood pressure. Conclusions: Indicated factors of female students’ adaptation to learning is to be considered the strength of the hand (factor of physical development), long jump from the place (factor of physical preparedness), the Genci test (factor of the functional state), the coefficient of circulation efficiency and the endurance factor.
