Abstract

This paper aims at building up a set of ballistic and Taiji exercises to know their effect on developing some physical variables (flexibility, agility, balance, muscular strength), psychological skills (ability to relax and concentrate attention) and the skilful performance level on the side horse (front handspring) among female gymnastics students. The experimental method was used, and the sample consisted of 30 female students. Research tools included physical tests, psychological tests and ballistic and Taiji tests. Statistical treatment included the arithmetic means, the median standard deviation, torsion factor and the T test. The training period was eight weeks on a three session a week basis. The major result was that there are statistically significant differences in the functional variables, psychological skills and skilful performance level. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
