Aim: To develop tables to assess the physical development of high schoolers based on the interaction of total physical dimensions. Materials and Methods: To achieve this goal, we studied the indicators of body length, body weight and chest circumference of 7-17 years old boys (n=1 111) and girls (n=l 133) of secondary schools in Kyiv (Ukraine). Multiple correlation was used to calculate the interaction of indicators of total physical dimensions, and multiple regression was used to develop gender and age standards of physical development of high schoolers. Results: The tables to assess physical development of high schoolers ofa certain gender and age have been developed. The tables contain body length in vertical direction and body weight or chest circumference in horizontal direction, depending on what is needed for determination: the proper values of CC or body weight. The guantitative characteristics of high schoolers with good, excessive, below average and low levels of physical development are presented. Conclusions: Rational organization of physical training of high schoolers is impossible without objective testing ofthe level of their physical development. Timely corresponding testing is a guarantee in preventing physical strains and health problems.
