ABSTRACT
The aim of the study is to investigate the effect of a six-week-training course in the sports school on some physical characteristics of male subjects aged 23-30 years in an experimental manner. 51 male subjects (age: 25.7± 1.9years, height: 174±5.8 cm, weight: 72.1 9.7 kg) consented to participate in the study. Subjects did practical exercises five days a week for two hours each in the morning and the afternoon during the six-week physical education program. The pre-course and post-course body fat percentage (BFP), body mass index (BMI), back strength, handgrip strength of both hands, standing long jump distance, number of push-ups, shuttles and gallows per minute, and 2400 m run time were measured. The statistical relationship between pre- and post-training course values was determined via the parametric matched t test. Pearson Correlation Coefficient analysis was used to determine the statistical association between antropometric features and physical compliance parameters.Following 6 weeks of training in the sports school back strength increased by 14%, hand grip of both hands by 5%, flexibility by 16%, standing long jump distance by 5%, body fat percentage by 9%, push-ups/minute by 36%, shuttles by 27%, and gallows by 45%. 2400 m run time decreased by 15%. There was no significant change in the BMI (p:0,117).Training in the sports school for 6 weeks contributed significantly to the physical characteristics that were subject to the study.
