ABSTRACT

It takes excellent physical preparation for athletes to face the XX National Sports Week event in Papua province for West Sumatra athletes. In the following, the characteristics of the physical condition of the athletes at the Provincial Training Center are presented in the martial arts and games. This study involves 77 selected athletes. The sampling technique used is total sampling, making all the population a sample. There are 10 instruments used to get a picture of the athlete's physical condition (Mackenzie, B), namely: sit ups, push ups, medicine hand ball, bleep test, 20 meter sprint, 400 meter sprint, t-run, core stability, split and jumping hurdle. Data analysis using descriptive techniques is conducted with the help of the SPSS Version 21 application. The research findings show that the athletes' Core Stability test results are in the very good category because only 14% of athletes are below the group average. Furthermore, the test results of sit ups, push ups, medicine hand ball, bleep test, 20 meter sprint, 400 meter sprint, t-run, split and jumping hurdle show that athletes' physical conditions were in the medium category, because 44% to 60% of athletes were below average. It can be concluded, from 10 physical condition test instruments, only core stability athletes are good. The average ability of other physical conditions is still not good and needs to be improved again so that the expected performance can be achieved optimally.
