RELATION BETWEEN ANTHROPOMETRIC CHARACTERISTICS AND KINEMATIC PARAMETERS WHICH INFLUENCE STANDING LONG JUMP EFFICIENCY IN BOYS AND ADOLESCENTS
The aim of this research was to determine the relation between the anthropometrical variables and kinematic parameters that influence the standing long jump efficiency in boys and adolescents aged 4 to 18, as well as students of second year of Faculty of Kinesiology. With this aim, a sample of 120 examinees has been selected and divided into 5 experimental groups consisting of 20 boys and adolescents (aged 4 to 6, 7 to 9, 10 to 12, 13 to 15, 16 to 18), and one control group consisting of 20 second year students of Faculty of Kinesiology. The sample of variables consisted of 21 kinematic parameters relevant for efficient standing long jump performance, followed by battery of 13 morphological characteristics, as well as the age of the examinees. This research determined the relation between certain morphological characteristics and kinematic parameters relevant for standing long jump performance. It can be concluded that in adults, the jump length was primarily influenced by body mass, subcutaneous fat tissue and body fat percentage, while in younger age groups, besides the mentioned measures, the examinees who were taller, had longer arms and legs achieved better results.
