Prevention of Muscle Imbalance in Preschool Children Through the Rhythmic Gymnastics
Biomedical Journal of Scientific & Technical Research
ARTICLE INFO Abstract The problem of modern physical inactivity in children is becoming very relevant. Accelerated technological progress observed in society contributes to a reduction in motor activity not only in children, but also in adults. Improper body position with physical inactivity is accompanied by the formation of muscle imbalance in the human body. The current paper presents a methodology for the physical development of preschool aged children with the use of means of rhythmic
... ns of rhythmic gymnastics. Such means include various options for steps, running; simple acrobatic elements; choreographic balances, turns, jumps; gymnastic objects: ropes, balls, hoops. To justify the effectiveness of the experimental technique for the prevention of muscle imbalance, it has been tested some physical qualities in the preschool children. Therefore, it was investigated the following physical qualities: muscles strength endurance of the individual parts of the body, flexibility/mobility of the hip joints and spine, rapidity of action and reaction. The effectiveness of the developed methodology was confirmed using mathematical statistics methods. The obtained results are graphically presented and in the table.
