Keywords: physical education, students, mutual learning, health

Abstract

Introduction. The problem of research and increasing of motor activity modes remains relevant, since motor activity is one of the main factors determining health and the level of physical condition of population. The aim of study was to analyze the impact of the mutual learning program of physical education for improvement the physical and mental fitness of students in Ukraine. Material and Methods. Four groups were used for the survey: 2 experimental groups (male, n=31; female, n=33), which received 64 lessons of physical education, which included intra-subgroup interaction, changing of students, and control of knowledge and skills of each other, and 2 control groups (male, n=32; female, n=31), which received a traditional physical education lessons. Assessment of the somatic health (Ketle index, Robinson index, lifetime index, strength index) and physical preparadness (running tests, trunk from the lying position, throw of a medball). Efficiency of processing, speed of figuring out the work and mental stability were determined using Schultz-Platonov tables. Results . The results suggest about an increase in the functional capacity of cardiovascular and respiratory system among male and female of experimental group. The growth of the physical fitness results was set in lifting the trunk from the lying position to the sitting and throw of medball. After the experiment, positive changes in cognitive parameters were observed in female and male of experimental group. Among control group students, the results were significantly stable. Conclusions . The results suggest that program increased the level of physical and mental fitness of students of both gender and had a significant impact on the indicators of cardiovascular system.
