Objective of the study was to determine changes in the level of the special physical fitness of student volleyball players during the Moscow Student Sports Games season.
Methods and structure of the study. We analyzed the scientific and methodical literature and tested the volleyball players of student teams participating in the Moscow Student Sports Games. The study was conducted at the premises of the Russian State University of Physical Education, Sport, Youth, and Tourism from September 2019 through February 2020. Sampled for the study were the male volleyball players (n=42) participating in the Moscow Student Sports Games.
The authors present the main tools used to increase the efficiency of the overall and explosive strength of the student volleyball players.
Results and conclusions. The findings showed that special physical fitness of the student volleyball players improved during the season. This improvement was achieved through the use of speed-strength exercises during each training session. However, the level of development of special features at the beginning of the Moscow Student Sports Games was found to be low, and by the end of the season it reached the below-average level only.
Based on the data obtained, the authors find it necessary to improve the process of special physical training of student teams, as evidenced by the physical fitness rates of the volleyball players of the student teams during the regular season.
