Abstract

Aim. The article aims to explore the features of a ball kicking bioelectric activity of lower limbs muscles in students playing snow football. Materials and methods. 30 males aged 21-25 years old were examined (3-4-year students): the control group consisted of 15 people playing football; the main group included 15 people playing snow football. Athletes kick a ball on a normal and on a slippery surface, imitation of a slippery surface was carried out using a GYMSTICK Power Slider 61131-PRO slide board. To record the bioelectric activity of the muscles, the Neuro- MVP-4 multifunctional computer system was used (Neurosoft, Ivanovo, Russia). The bioelectric activity of the calf muscles (the medial lateral head of the calf muscle), the rectus femoris muscle, and the adductor longus muscle was studied. Results: It has been shown that athletes playing football and snow football have different and largely opposite motor stereotypes of intermuscular coordination when kicking the ball in usual conditions. When this action is repeated under unusual conditions, stereotype distortion is observed. Football players are characterized by a partial stereotype distortion, while people playing snow football are almost completely disorganized on a normal surface. Conclusion: Football training for students playing various types of football should be carried out in different conditions and implement various strategies. In particular, it should be aimed at various muscle groups. Ball kicking in unusual conditions should be used carefully, as this can be accompanied by a negative transfer of skills and reduce the effectiveness of athletes' performance.
