Estimation of motor qualities and skills in first-form
Physical fitness, physical capacity, motor skill development were
studied in 875 first-form pupils (470 boys and 405 girls) living in the
ecologically poor and good districts of the town of Kirov.
The ecologically poor factors associated with heavy traffic were found to be
associated with reduced rapidity in boys and rapidity, flexibility,
coordination capacities, and aerobic performance in girls. These factors
also lowered the formation of motor skills, including the skills of light
steps, walking, running, and ball figure-of-eight performance around the
legs. In addition, the formation of skipping skills was decreased in girls.
