This study was designed to compare and analyze the influences of the continuous music rope-jumping exercise program on basal fitness and interest level in the physical education class. The students of U Girls' Middle School in Ulsan have been tested for 8 weeks, with division of the two groups - the experimental group (37 students) and the comparative group (37 students). The students' physical fitness (muscular strength, agility, power, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility) and emotional states (interest levels) were measured and analyzed before and after the 8-week music rope-jumping program. The results of analyzing the data are as follows:
First, the students of the experimental group enhanced the average of muscular strength, agility, muscular endurance, and flexibility a little more than those of the comparative group, but the two groups made no great differences. The differences of power and cardiovascular endurance were statistically meaningful.
Second, the students who participated in the music rope-jumping program showed significant differences in self-confidence, enjoyment, cooperation, interest in the category of the interest level about physical classes before and after the experiment.
In conclusion, the music rope-jumping exercise program made girl students enhance their basal fitness level generally and motivated them to do exercise positively. It is expected to develop continuously various music rope-jumping exercise programs for boy or girl students in secondary schools by readjusting frequency and intensity.
