MetadataShow full item record
The professional physical training is especially relevant to the future statutory officers and its purpose of exercise is to help to form the psychophysical features and qualities of an individual which correspond to the requirements of profession. The objective of this work is to investigate the rates of health, physical fitness and development of future statutory officers by using Eurofit testing programme. The participants of the research are the students who study “Fire safety” and “Safety engineering” in the Faculty of Public Security (FPS) of Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) and the Faculty of Civil Engineering (FCI) of Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU). Eurofit tests were used to evaluate the physical fitness of school children and students, they were applied to judge on quickness (running in the 100 metres), common stamina (running in the 3000 metres), sudden foot force (standing long jump), hand power endurance (pull–ups), stomach muscle force endurance (sit down and lie down), balance (flamingo), speed of upper limbs motion (tapping), static force (hand grip) etc. It was determined that the speed rates of the examined students of VGTU and MRU surely statistically didn‘t differ (p>0,05), they balanced within the pale of 13,50-13,75 seconds. The students of MRU achieved the best rates of common stamina of running in the 3000 metres in the first research ( = 13:12 min). The rates between testing of sudden foot force of MRU individuals were surely statistically on the decrease (p<0,01) and during the first testing the average of their achieved results amounted to 264,95 cm. The average value of the rates of hand power endurance numbered 14 pull-ups by examining the groups of students from the university. The rates between testing of stomach muscle endurance of all team boys increased and the students of VGTU achieved the highest results ( = 29,77 times/30 s). According to the test of the speed of upper limbs, the future officers of MRU achieved the best result ( = 9,96 s) during the second research and it was evaluated as “very good“. The rates of tests (“hand static force“, “hand relative force“, “balance“ and “sudden foot force“) of future statutory officers who had participated in the research were considerably higher than the average results of Lithuanian students who had been examined before.
