Motor fitness components of young prospective teachers of physical education: A profile study
Purpose of the study was to prepare profiles of young prospective teachers of physical education with specialization in swimming and gymnastics in respect of motor fitness components. The subjects for the study were 15 students who were admitted to Indira Gandhi Institute of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Vikas Puri, New Delhi. The age of the subjects ranged from 22 to 35 years. The motor fitness components selected were speed (50m dash), agility (4x10m shuttle run), strength (standing broad jump) and endurance (600m run). In order to make profiles; the performance of each subject in motor fitness components was compared with the norms and marks were assigned. The marks received by each subject in motor fitness components were plotted on the profile graph. The plotted points were joined in order to work out the trait pattern for each subject. It is concluded that the overall status of young prospective teachers of physical education in different motor fitness components is satisfactory. The subjects possess very good endurance (600m Run), and their performance in speed (50m Sprint) agility (4x10m Shuttle Run) is good. The status of the subjects in agility and leg explosive strength (standing broad jump) needs to be improved.
