  • THE EXPRESSION OF AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR IN SERBIAN SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS
           WHO PLAY SPORTS

    • Authors: Željka Bojanić, Ivana Milovanović
      Pages: 129 - 139
      Abstract: The aim of the study was to examine the occurrence of aggression in school among students who play sports, according to the expression model of Žužul (1989), who identifies five types of aggressive behavior (physically manifest aggression, physical latent aggression, verbally manifest aggression, verbal latent aggression, indirect aggression). Moreover, we investigated gender and age differences and differences across types of secondary schools. The sample consisted of 225 high school students, who completed the Aggression Questionnaire (Žužul, 1989). The total occurrence, gender differences, age differences, and secondary school vocational differences were evaluated. The results indicated that the general aggression occurrence is lower than the normative data from the Serbian population (t (224) = 14.90, p < .001), where the preferred expression modality is verbal aggression, independently of the students’ gender. The results showed that boys are more prone to physical aggression, both manifest and latent. No gender differences were found regarding both aspects of verbal aggression. Age differences were found in all five types of aggression, suggesting that older students are more likely to engage in different forms of aggressive behavior. Physical latent aggression and overall aggression were the highest among adolescents in vocational high schools. This study contributes to a better understanding of different patterns of aggressive behavior among high school students who play sports.

  • THE EFFECT OF ISOMETRIC CONTRACTION POTENTIATION ENHANCEMENT ON ANAEROBIC
           POWER

    • Authors: Onur Coban, Berkant Erman, Gencer Yarkın, Mehmet Zeki Ozkol
      Pages: 141 - 151
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to examine the effect of isometric contraction potentiation enhancement (ISO-PAPE) on anaerobic power. Twelve professional female volleyball players participated in this study. The participants came to the laboratory on two sessions 72 hours apart. The participants were randomly assigned to either the control (n = 6) or experimental (n = 6) group. In the first session, the Bosco repeated jump test (BRJT) was applied to both the control and experimental group. In the second session, the experimental group also applied the isometric mid-thigh pull exercise for 3 seconds with 3 sets and 2 minutes of recovery between repetitions. After the applied ISO-PAPE protocol, the BRJT was performed. The control group performed only the BJRT after the standard warm-up protocol.  The anaerobic power measurements of both the control and experimental group were performed. According to the findings of the study, there were no significant differences between the groups before the ISO-PAPE application (p>0.05). After the ISO-PAPE application on the experimental group, there were only significant differences in flight time (p=0.025). This difference in the experimental group was found to be significantly lower than in the control group (p≤0.005). In conclusion, it was thought that the ISO-PAPE protocol did not have a positive effect on anaerobic power.

  • THE EFFECTS OF DEVELOPMENTAL GYMNASTICS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF BOYS’
           MOTOR SKILLS

    • Authors: Miloš Paunović, Dušan Đorđević, Saša Veličković, Marko Đurović
      Pages: 153 - 162
      Abstract: The aim of the study was to determine the effects of the developmental gymnastics program on the motor skills development of boys of a younger school age. The total sample consisted of 107 boys (E-54; 10.07±0.91 years old; C-53; 10.36±0.68 years old), from the “Dušan Radović” Elementary school from Niš. The experimental program lasted 16 weeks (3x a week for 60 min) and included the training of the compulsory compositions of the development gymnastics program for younger school age children. The control group attended regular physical education classes. The following tests were used for motor skills assessment: the countermovement jump, squat jump, medicine ball throw, hanging pull-ups, sit-ups on the bench, push-ups, the 20m run from a high start, the backward polygon, and deep forward bend on the bench. The T-test revealed significant differences between the groups at the initial measurement, while all the observed differences in arithmetic means were statistically significant at the final measurement. The results of the univariate analysis indicate significant differences in six of the nine applied variables, whereas at the multivariate level, a significant difference (p=.000) can be observed. The obtained results exactly indicate that the experimental program contributed significantly more to the motor skills transformation than the current physical education program. The realized program of developmental gymnastics proved to be adequate and acceptable, so it is recommended for active application in practice, and the greatest contribution would be realized by its implementation in physical education classes.

  • PHYSICAL FITNESS IN CHILDREN AGED 10 AND 11 ACCORDING TO PARTICIPATION IN
           SPORTS AND FOLKLORE ACTIVITIES

    • Authors: Slavica Dimitrijević, Goran Šekeljić, Jovan Marković, Mila Manić, Slavoljub Uzunović
      Pages: 163 - 172
      Abstract: This study aimed to examine the differences in physical fitness among younger school-age children according to sport participation. The sample consisted of 252 children, categorized into three groups based on their engagement in sports and folklore activities. The variables analyzed include body weight, body height, the toe touch, push-ups, the standing long jump, shuttle run, obstacle course backwards, bent-arm hang, and sit ups. The results indicated significant differences in the standing long jump, push-ups, obstacle course backwards, the 20m run, and bent-arm hang among the groups (p<0.05). This study highlighted significant differences in physical fitness among younger school-age children based on their engagement in sports, folklore activities, or inactivity. The findings have implications for educators and coaches in designing appropriate physical education programs for younger school-age children.

  • VALIDITY OF THE INTERNATIONAL PHYSICAL ACTIVITY QUESTIONNAIRE (IPAQ) FOR
           SERBIAN ADOLESCENTS IN URBAN AREAS

    • Authors: Katarina Simonović, Aleksandra Stanković, Katarina Šlljivić, Maja Nikolić
      Pages: 173 - 181
      Abstract: Physical activity (PA) remains the most important modifiable risk factor in chronic diseases prevention. Instruments to assess physical activity, especially for youth, are needed for (inter)national monitoring systems and comparison. The aim of the present study was to test the validity of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) in a group of urban Serbian adolescents. We hypothesized that the IPAQ has good validity compared with the objective standard (pedometry) in this population. Convenient sampling of secondary school students was employed in this study. For that purpose, twenty-nine (N=29) healthy adolescents (15-17 years old) from the city of Niš, Serbia voluntarily participated in the study. PA levels derived from the Serbian long version self-administered IPAQ were compared with pedometer-recorded data of step counts. PA was expressed as a metabolic equivalent-minute per week (MET-min/week) and classified as light, moderate, and vigorous. Then, the participants were asked to register pedometer-based step counts for seven consecutive days. Significant correlations were found between the IPAQ and the pedometer in all components, except light PA. Pedometer-based PA was strongly correlated with moderate and vigorous activity (r = 0.746, p < 0.0001), as well as with overall PA (r = 0.998, p < 0.0001). Comparing the four domains of IPAQ determined PA (leisure time physical activity, domestic and gardening activities, school-related physical activity and transport-related physical activity) and pedometry-based PA, significant correlations were found for three domains (p < 0.0001), excluding transport. The findings of this study provided support for the validity of the Serbian version of the IPAQ as an instrument for the assessment of habitual PA among adolescents.
