Abstract

Many children are grown in large cities, apartments and very small kindergartens. On the other hand, school environment does not encourage and make them to attempt for learning by movement. That is why the programs that do not require a lot of places and facilities are noticed. One of this exercise is rope jump that is a component of the Ministry of Education's programs in fourth grade of students in elementary school. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of eight weeks rope jump on leg muscles strength and resting heart rate in fourth grade of female students in elementary school. This study consisted of two groups (rope jump training and Control group) with pre-test and post-test was conducted on fourth grade of female students in elementary school. Rope jump training group has exercised for eight weeks (three times per week for 50 minutes) and control group did not perform certain exercise. At the end of eight weeks, leg muscles strength and heart rate primary tests (post-test) were taken in both groups again. The results showed that after eight weeks of rope jump training, there were statistical significant between their pre and post- tests leg muscles strength and resting heart rate measurements (P ≤ 0/05). According to the results of this study, eight weeks rope jump training increases leg muscles strength and reduces the resting heart rate of students.
