The research was carried out on a sample of 124 subjects, 15-16 year old males. An analysis was performed of the relations of anthropometric body characteristics and overcome resistance in recurring motion. The evaluation of resistance in motion was based on conducting motion with 75% of the maximum achieved, overcome weight, repetitive motion is carried out until the maximum number of correctly executed repetitions. Obtained information was submitted for mathematical analysis, the MULTREG program, from the statistical program “STAT – PACK” (Gauss – Jordan, 1954, Cooley – Lohnes, 1962). On the basis of maximum cohesion and regressive coefficients, variables that measured body volume, transversal skeletal dimension and longitudinal skeletal dimension have the highest cohesion with the overcome maximum resistance in recurring motion from anthropometric body characteristics. High cohesion of variables of the overcome resistance in recurring motion with anthropometric body characteristics indicates that a part of the resistance variable in motion is expectedly significant. As the overcome maximum resistance in motion is mainly conditioned by the structure for generating intensity and duration of energy release, thus the anthropometric dimensions, especially in the volume segment, body volume and transversal skeletal dimensionality, present a factor that significantly participates in the realization of motion with increased requirements for overcoming maximum resistance in motion.
