Objective of the study was to rate the level of physical fitness of modern agrarian university students.
Methods and structure of the study. The study was carried out on the basis of Krasnoyarsk State Agrarian University in the 2018/2019 academic year and involved the 3rd-year students (n=50, including 25 boys and 25 girls).
The students' physical fitness level was evaluated using the following tests: boys - 3,000 m and 100 m race, pull-ups on a high horizontal bar, standing long jump and sit-ups for 1 min; girls - 2,000 m and 100 m run, sit-ups for 1 min, standing long jump and standing bends forward. The statistical results were analyzed to draw the corresponding conclusions and make proposals for action.
Results and conclusions. The study enabled to determine the general state of physical fitness of the students after the completion of the academic course in the Physical Education and Sports discipline (3 years). The physical fitness rates in the agrarian university students were compared with those of the university students of the Krasnoyarsk region. In addition, the agrarian university students' physical fitness rates were compared with the GTO Complex standards.
This broad and wide-ranging analysis made it possible to draw correct conclusions and develop preventive and practical guidelines for specialists, teachers, and students.
