Motor activity, Self-monitoring, Physical development, Health


Background: The implementation of daily and weekly self-control of individual motor activity, consisting of various speed modes, is not a systematically studied issue. The aim of the study was to develop an individually-differentiated system of self-monitoring of daily physical activity of athletes to increase their motor regime and prove its effectiveness by increasing the level of physical development and health of participants in the experiment. Study participants: Thirty-two subjects from 18 to 25 years of age, engaged for 12 weeks at the Sports Club “Progress”(Glazov, Russia). Interventions: self-monitoring by the participants of this research on a ranking system for diverse types of physical exercises by their correlation to one ordinary step or author's motor unit. Main outcome measures: the author’s self-monitoring system contributes to lowering the body mass index of athletes and developing their endurance. However, its implementation is effective in increasing the level of physical health only among athletes, stably, systematically and without significant deviations in the level of weekly physical activity performing physical activity. The results of the study. the implementation of daily monitoring of motor activity of young people in various motor modes stimulates respondents to increase their motor daily, weekly and monthly activity. Findings. The author’s recommendations for the implementation of continuous self-monitoring will provide feedback to the user of the programme, increase motivation for setting individual goals of amateur athletes and strategies for their further achievement.
