The purpose of the research was to study biomechanical characteristics of performance of basketball throws by men and women. The results received testify to essential variety of physiological characteristics of performance of throws by men and women going in for basketball. The allocated differences are associated firstly with organization of arm muscle work and secondly, with the manner of movement of athlete's general gravity centre. Male basketball-players have synchronized work of motor units, shown in the increase of the range and decrease of the rate of bioelectrical muscle work along with prolongation of the activity phase of triceps brachii muscle and arising of the second burst of activity in flexor carpi ulnaris. Female basketball-players are capable of successful balancing and motor coordination proved by the results of the "Evolvent" test.
