A "pilot" research aimed at determining the effects of “station-based” workouts on the
development of explosive and repetitive strength was carried out on a small but representative
sample consisting of 64 examinees, pupils of the elementary schools “Sveti Sava” and
“Ratko Vukicevic” in Nis, 11 years of age (± 6 months).
The sample was divided into two sub-samples: excperimental and control groups with
the same number of examinees (32 pupils).
The experimental program consisted of a set of exercises for explosive and repetitive
strength development performed in the second part of the class (after a pre-practice warmup
drill) and lasting 10-12 minutes. A system of six stations was prepared: three for explosive
strength development and three for repetitive strength development. The control group
continued to follow the regular program of physical education. Two measurements of motor
abilities were carried out: at the beginning of the experiment and after 25 classes. A battery
of six tests was applied.
A multivariate analysis of variance revealed statistically significant development of
explosive and repetitive strength in the pupils from the experimental group. The control
group showed certain development of repetitive strength
