Organizational and methodical features of classical aerobics and rhythmic gymnastics


The study is devoted to the problem of terminological confusion in the concepts of “rhythmic gymnastics” and “classical aerobics”. We present a comparative description of two types of motor activity: rhythmic gymnastics and classical aerobics. The comparison is carried out for 12 criteria: the content of the classes (equipment); specific exercise technique; the physical qualities developed in the classroom; method of exercise; the structure and content of parts of lessons; music; methods of constructing combinations of the motor; pedagogical control; the predominant nature of the energy supply of muscle activity; requirements for equipment; equipment of the hall; instructor’s commands. On the basis of the conducted pedagogical experiment, the methods of the effectiveness of rhythmic gymnastics and classical aerobics is shown. Changes in the indicators of physical fitness of high school students taking part in the experiment are revealed.
