Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of integrative neuromuscular training (INT) during physical education (PE) class on selected measures of health- and skill-related "tness in children. Forty children from two 2nd grade PE classes were cluster randomized into either an INT group (n = 21) or a control (CON) group (n = 19). INT was performed 2×/wk during the "rst !15 min of each PE class and consisted of body weight exercises. INT and CON participants were assessed for health- and skill-related "tness before and after 8 wks of PE with or without INT, respectively. A signi"cant interaction of group by time was observed in INT participants with improvements noted in push-ups, curl-ups, long jump, single leg hop, and 0.5 mile (0.8 km) run performance (p < .05). These data indicate that INT is an effective and time-ef"cient addition to PE as evidenced by improvements in health- and skill-related "tness measures in children.
