Abstract

The study carried out addresses the issue of muscle strength development in the problematic context generated by the Covid 19 pandemic, for 8th grade students in middle school. The experimental program was implemented during the time interval November 20th , 2020 - March 15th , 2021, by combining online activities with the variant of the lessons taught at school. The studied group (11 girls and 10 boys) went through the variants of planned strength training structures for the main muscle groups, which were completed with various programs selected from the Youtube platform. The results fully confirm the working hypothesis formulated. The results obtained must be analysed with caution, the isolation at home affecting the motor potential of the students, but the fact that significant progress is still made indicates the possibility of scrolling the contents of the school curriculum in this undesirable context.
