Abstract AR

هدفت الدراسة للتعرف على مستوى النشاط البدني و اللياقة لتلاميذ المرحلة الثانوية في ضوء متغيري الجنس و مؤشر الكتلة الجسمية و اشتملت العينة المختارة عشوائيا على 389 تلميذا (238تلميذة و 151تلميذ) بعمر (15- 19سنة) من ثانويات منطقة جنوب سطيف بمعدل 3أقسام تمثل المستويات الدراسية الثلاث.

و لجمع البيانات تم استخدام استبانة النشاط البدني لكوالاسكي و أخرون كما تم تطبيق بطرية اختبارات اللياقة لتحديد نشاط و لياقة التلاميذ.

وقد أسفرت النتائج على أن مستوى النشاط البدني عموما في المتوسط وأن الذكور أكثر نشاطا من الاناث بينما لم توجد فروق معنوية في مستوى النشاط حسب مؤشر الكتلة الجسمية لكل جنس.

و من ناحية أخرى كانت الفروق معنوية لصالح الذكور في كل عناصر اللياقة وأن اللياقة البدنية تتأثر بمؤشر الكتلة فكلما ارتفع الوزن عند الذكور زاد مستوى اللياقة في عنصر قوة الرمي وكلما انخفض الوزن عند الاناث زاد مستوى اللياقة في عنصري قوة القفز و الرشاقة.
