Dušan LITVA, Ph.D.

Abstract


This paper is concerned with physical development and performance of students who are trained and educated to become professional soldiers. The author aims to point to the students’ performance in the following tested disciplines: the men were tested in the 12-minute endurance run with the average result of 2,793.0 m and navigation of the obstacle course according to the Tel-1-1 regulation with the average result of 1:31.7 minute.  The women were tested in the standing long jump with the average length of 183.9 cm and the 1000-metre run, where they reached the average time of 4:08.2 minutes, or the 12-minute run, where the average distance was 2,412.0 m, depending on fat gain. Excess body fat levels, which have a negative influence on performance, were as follows: the subcutaneous fat values were 29.7% in the women and 18.2% among the men and the visceral fat values were 6.5 in the men and 3.5 among the women. The BMI in the men was 25.1 and in the women 22.1.

 

Key words: fats – subcutaneous fat, visceral fat, body weight, BMI, performance
