The present paper presents the results of experimental studies of the dynamics of intelligence and physical development of young men of 12 to 20 years of age. Analysis of the findings revealed the uneven dynamics and multi-directional relations between the studied parameters. If in the teen age the rate of physical development is negatively related to the dynamics of intelligence, then in early adolescence and later as they grow this relation turns into positive. As seen from correlation and cluster analyses there is a multidirectional relation of rates of development of various motor abilities, general physical development with the dynamics of intelligence as young men grow. In the structure of motor abilities the growth rates of speed and speed-strength abilities mainly correlate with the dynamics of intelligence.

Keywords: development dynamics of motor skills, dynamics of overall physical development, dynamics of intelligence, age, correlation, cluster analysis..
