Children are forced to spend some time at home, which reduces the time for physical activity. <em>The aim of the work</em> is to track changes in the indicators of speed and strength abilities of children aged 12-13 years during the year in the conditions of mixed and distance learning.</p> <p><em>Material and methods.</em> Schoolchildren aged 12-13 years took part in the study (Kharkiv, Ukraine; n=31; boys - n=16; girls - n=15). Parental consent was obtained for their children's participation in the study. The following tests were used: “30 meter sprint test, sec.”; “60 meter sprint test, sec.”; “Standing Long Jump Test (Broad Jump), cm”; "Long jump, cm". Assessment of schoolchildren’s speed and strength abilities was conducted at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year and repeated data – at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year. The obtained results were analyzed by methods of mathematical statistics: correlation analysis was conducted to identify relationships between the results of control standards of schoolchildren, the reliability of the difference was determined by the Student's criterion.</p> <p><em>Results.</em> There is a significant decrease in physical activity of children. Trends to reduce the level of development of speed and strength abilities of schoolchildren for the 2020-2021 school year have been identified. There are high and medium correlations between speed and power tests.</p> <p><em>Conclusions.</em> It is recommended to reduce the number of mandatory control standards in the school of choice between: "30 meter sprint test" - "60 meter sprint test"; “Standing Long Jump Test (Broad Jump)” - “Long jump”.</p> Olena Nesen Copyright (c) 2021 Olena Nesen Wed, 02 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Dynamics of special endurance of athletes aged 13-15 years under the influence of the program of the Cossack duel <p><em>Background and Study Aim</em><em>.</em> National sports are gradually spreading around the world and becoming international. One of such sports is the Cossack duel - a national martial art in Ukraine. In addition to the purely sports component, this sport has national traditions of educating healthy youth. The purpose of the study is to identify the impact of the Cossack duel program on the special endurance of athletes aged 13-15 year.</p> <p><em>Material and methods.</em> Athletes (n = 6, age - 13-15 years) of the Cossack duel department of the sports school № 6 (Kharkiv, Ukraine) took part in the study. The children's parents agreed to participate in the study. The study was conducted with athletes of the basic training group on the Cossack duel (sports school №6, Kharkiv, Ukraine) for two years. At the beginning, a preliminary test of the level of special endurance of athletes was conducted. In the end, the final testing of the level of special endurance development of young athletes was conducted. SPSS was used to process the test results. The confidence level is 0.05.</p> <p><em>Results.</em> It is established that for two years of using the author's program the density of shock actions of athletes has increased significantly. This is manifested in an increase in the number of blows to the bag with his hands and feet (p˂0.001). It was found that the load of maximum intensity during one round caused significant changes in the cardiovascular system. These indicators were almost indistinguishable (0.7%). The process of restoring heart rate has become more advanced. After 60 sec. recovery difference was 13.2%, and after 120 sec. - 16.1%.</p> <p><em>Conclusions. </em>One of the main factors in the training of athletes in the Cossack duel is special endurance. Among the effective methods of improving special endurance are interval and interval-circle training methods. To control the development of special endurance of athletes, it is advisable to use a 1.5 - minute test with the performance of shock actions with hands and feet on a punching bag. Criteria for assessing special endurance should be the intensity of the kicks, heart rate. It is necessary to remember the harmonious upbringing of the individual, to apply health-preserving technologies, to pay great attention to the upbringing of young people in the spirit of respect for national traditions.</p> Andrij Plokhikh, Gennadij Ogar Copyright (c) 2021 Andrij Plokhikh & Gennadij Ogar Wed, 02 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Features of the use of physical exercises at the long-term stage of rehabilitation after intra-articular fractures <p><em>Background and Study Aim</em><em>.</em> The main demand after surgical treatment of the injury is to restore motor function and return to an active lifestyle. The inclusion of effective therapeutic exercises in the rehabilitation program will help to restore the physical activity of patients. The aim of the study is to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of a set of therapeutic exercises to restore the movements of the lower extremities of patients after surgery.</p> <p><em>Material and Methods.</em> The program involved 14 patients who were randomized (n=6 - control group, CG; n=8 - main group, MG). All patients gave their informed consent to participate in the experiment and to the processing of their personal data. It was used the following scales: “6 minute walk test”, “Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score” (KOOS). The International Classification of Functioning (ICF) categories were assessed and program objectives were set. Conducted individual classes according to the developed rehabilitation program in the MG and the generally accepted in the CG. After 2 months, the implementation of the goals set in the program was evaluated. Nonparametric statistics were used to determine differences between groups, Wilcoxon test for related sets, and Mann-Whitney criteria for independent sets. Values ​​of p &lt;0.05 were considered significant.</p> <p><em>Results.</em> The goal of "Restore lower limb function" and "Ability to drive a car" was fulfilled in the MG and CG. Significant differences in the dynamics of KOOS subscales “Pain”, “Symptoms and stiffness”, “Quality of life” confirm this (p &lt;0.05). The goal "Ability to work in the backyard" was met only by MG patients. The distance traveled significantly improved in MG and CG (p &lt;0.05), but there was a significant difference between the comparison groups on this indicator (p &lt;0.05). The assessment of the scale of the KOOS “Sport” and “Active Recreation” subscales changed only for MG (p &lt;0.05) and at the end of the program differed significantly from the CG (p &lt;0.05). Category d850 “Paid work” significantly improved during the study period in MG (p &lt;0.05), with a significant difference between these indicators with CG. 2 of 6 CG patients (33.3 ± 21.1%) and 6 of 8 patients with MG (75.0 ± 16.4%) returned to previous work at p &lt;0.05.</p> <p><em>Conclusions.</em> It is recommended to perform exercises with an emphasis on the posterior surface of the lower extremity. The author's program of physical rehabilitation is quite conditional. Depending on the situation and condition of patients, adjustments are made. But the general direction and nature of the impact must be maintained.</p> Sviatoslava Pashkevych, Tetiana Shutieieva, Оlha Beziazychna Copyright (c) 2021 Pashkevych et al.

This is a guarantee of the integrity of the process of training athletes for the next stage of preliminary basic training. <em>The purpose of the study</em> is to determine the indicators of speed and strength qualities of young fencers 12-13 years old at the stage of initial training.</p> <p><em>Material and methods.</em> Fencers (n=13, age – 12-13 years, sports experience – 3 years) took part in the study. The children's parents agreed to participate in the study. The following tests were used: speed of overcoming the distance of 14 meters by fencing steps forward in the on-quard position, seconds; speed of overcoming distance of 14 meters by fencing steps back in the on-quard position, seconds; hits on the target in 10 seconds, the number of times; “Standing Long Jump Test”, cm; "Vertical Jump Test", sm. The computer program Excel was used: the indicators of arithmetic mean and standard deviation were determined. Correlation analysis was performed to identify relationships between the results of athletes' control standards. Statistical reliability was determined by Student's t test.</p> <p><em>Results.</em> A sufficient level of development of speed and strength abilities for fencers of this age and qualification has been established. The relationship between the speed and strength of the muscles of the upper and lower extremities in young fencers was observed.</p> <p><em>Conclusions.</em> The selected content and load of athletes fully meet the objectives of training. This is emphasized by the steady development of speed and strength abilities of athletes during fencing.</p> Olena Nesen, Viktoriia Klimenchenko Copyright (c) 2021 Olena Nesen et al.

This allows the coach to decide on the appropriateness of its use in different moments of the game to obtain optimal results. The purpose of the work is to determine the indicators of the effectiveness of jump serve by volleyball players of student teams.</p> <p><em>Material and Methods.</em> The analysis of statistical data obtained as a result of pedagogical observations of the performance of jump serve. Volleyball players (aged 17-21 years) were monitored during the competitions. 8 games with the total number of jump serve 410 were selected for analysis.</p> <p><em>Results.</em> The corresponding indicators of efficiency of jump serve depending on number of a zone of a playground are defined. The efficiency of serve and different zones was the following: in zone 1 - 34.9%; in zone 5 - 31.1%; in zone 6 - 23.6%. Zones 1 and 5 have been determined to be the most vulnerable to the opponent’s defensive actions in the jump serve. It was shown that the jump serve significantly reduces the chances of the opponent to attack effectively.</p> <p><em>Conclusions.</em> The results can be used to solve the problem of improving the efficiency of jump serve in the training and competitive activities of student teams. It is recommended to use the jump serve in the first two games, when its effectiveness reaches its maximum values. It is also recommended to direct such a serve to the playground zones 1 and 5. It is necessary to find ways to improve the technique and accuracy of the jump serve and increase its efficiency in competitive activities.</p> Alina Melnyk, Tamara Liakhova Copyright (c) 2022 Alina Melnyk, Tamara Liakhova Wed, 02 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0200
