Predictability of health fitness in terms of some motor abilities and body mass index (BMI)for Preparatory School Students of (16 - 17) Years Old in the Centre of Basra

Abstract

1 - Identify the distribution of body mass index BMI for Preparatory School Students of (16 - 17) Years Old in the Centre of Basra2 - Find an equation to predict the level of fitness health in terms of some mobility abilities for Preparatory School Students of (16 - 17) Years Old in the Centre of Basra3-To identify the contribution of some motor abilities in the level of health fitness for Preparatory School Students of (16 - 17) Years Old in the Centre of Basra.The researchers followed the descriptive method of survey in conducting this study. The study was conducted on a sample of (400) students distributed by educational sectors in the center of Basrah Governorate.The main conclusions of the study were:1. The percentage of malnutrition (thinness, weight gain and obesity) in the study sample was 17%, 16% and 5%, respectively.2 - Equation and numerical indicators and predictive measurements and tests of motor abilities, have the potential to assess the level of fitness .The main recommendations were:1 - The possibility of using the measurements and tests used in this study as objective means to monitor the level of fitness health.2 - the possibility of benefiting from the equations of prediction as a means of calculation of the objective assessment of the level of fitness
