The study aimed to determine the effect of speed-strength training on the indicators of attention stability of children aged 13-14 years with different nervous system strengths.
Materials and Methods
This case-control study lasted for three months (January 12 to March 20, 2020). All physical education classes at school number 60 in Kirov, Russia, were held twice a week for 40 minutes. According to the standard program, 20 children from the control group were engaged in physical education. Schoolchildren from the experimental group, 20 boys and girls-additionally performed a set of exercises to develop speed and strength abilities. All schoolchildren performed two control standards: The tapping test (assessment of the nervous system's strength), Bourdon test (assessment of the stability of attention).
Results showed that after the pedagogical experiment, the attention stability in schoolchildren from the control group with a robust nervous system improved by 4% (p>0.05), and in children with a weak nervous system, the indicators became higher by 3% (p>0.05). In the experimental group, the attention stability improved in schoolchildren with a robust nervous system by 18% (p <0.05) and in children with a weak nervous system by 14% (p <0.05).
Based on the results, the indicators of speed and strength abilities and the indicators of the stability of children's attention will improve.
