Abstract

At present the movement activities play more and more important role in the life of human being of any age. In this article are presented results of testing 569 Czech adult people (273 males and 296 females) older than 18 years. There are discussed sex differences results in 6 physical development parameters: fitness score (FS), body height (BH), body weight (BW), BMI, fat tissue percentage (%FAT) and waist hips rate (WHR), which were measured by machine Inbody 720.


Presented results show rather negative trends. Parameters of body weight, BMI, fat tissue percentage and waist hips rate seem to be mutually connected. Body weight increases according higher age in all watched periods, both in groups of males and of females, too, though the body height decreases. This influences also BMI, when most of male groups and two oldest female groups are of overweight. Similarly results can be seen in parameters of fat tissue percentage and waist hips rate. Fitness score parameters show greater decrease in male groups when the younger groups have the better results. This parameter in female groups keeps more equal balance and slightly falls after age of 49..
