Abstract

Abstract This paper analyzes the differences in the manifestation of strength performance between groups of seven-year-old male Macedonian students with different level of explosive strength abilities. A total number of 120 children were measured in 11 motor tests used for estimation of explosive, repetitive and static strength qualities. Tests hypothetically used for estimation of explosive strength were factorized with component factor analysis. Orthogonal varimax factors were defined and factor scores of participants were calculated using К-means clustering procedure in order to determine groups of students with under average (low), average (medium) and above (high) average explosive strength qualities. Group univariant differences among all analyzed variables were also assessed using ANOVA analysis. It was concluded that both: defined latent dimensions of relative manifestation of explosive strength of upper part of the body and the absolute strength of lower body parts have a significant and specific influence on the success of manifestation of strength performance in students at this age. This type of findings should be used as a base for determining the qualitative physical education teaching programmes and academic standards. Key words: explosive, strength, abilities, physical education, students
