The Influence of Burpee on the Distribution of Attention of Schoolchildren 15-16 Years Old



This paper aims to determine the influence of the «Burpee» exercise on the indicators of endurance and distribution of attention in children aged 15-16. The pedagogical experiment was carried out based on a comprehensive school, in the city of Kirov, Russia. The study involved children 15-16 years old in the amount of 52 people. During the study period, 30 physical education lessons were held in each class. Children from the control group were engaged in the usual program, and children from the experimental group additionally performed the «Burpee» exercise. Endurance in children was determined by the test «2000 m», and the distribution of attention was determined by the test «Different counts». The study used Excel and BioStat to determine Student’s T-tests.

After the pedagogical experiment, the indicators in the control group in the «2000 m» test improved by 1.9% (p>0.05), and in the «Different counts» by 4.3% (p>0.05). In the experimental group, the performance improved significantly in the «2000 m» test by 9% (p<0.05) and in the «Different counts» by 18% (p<0.05). If 15-16-year-old schoolchildren perform the «Burpee» exercise in physical education classes, then the indicators of endurance and distribution of attention will improve significantly. In this case, physical activity should be individual.
