ANALYSIS OF THE MORPHOLOGICAL STATUS STUDENTS BY APPLYING OF DIFFERENT METHODS OF THE INDEX
Faculty of Education – University of Travnik, Bosnia & Herzegovina
Nowadays it is generally lived in conditions of rapid pace, poor quality and unhealthy nutrition, reduced or insufficient movement, in a word hypokinetic lifestyle. Consequences of hypokinesia are many, and refer mainly to diseases of the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system, and the occurrence of diabetes. In addition, it can also be stated and the uneven growth and development of the individual leading to the negative trend of the development of some anthropometric characteristics and also to the morphological status of the individual. This research is dealing with the analysis of students of Physical Education and Sports. For the estimation of the morphological space was applied: Lorentz constitutional index (LKI), Muscle index (MI%), Body Mass Index (BMI kg/m²). The results showed that it is to low but positive a tendency of the stronger development of bone and muscle tissues of students, where the mean value of LKI is (Mean=1,50), muscle index MI (Mean=10,64%), that is they are in the upper limit of the middle development musculature. The average BMI values of students (Mean=23,60kg/m²) is also an indicator that this population increases the value defined by BMI, whose value is in the upper limit of normal body weight. These values BMI fully correspond to the values that were realized in the LKI and MI.
