The paper deals with the problems of the new approach to the planning of the physical education. The research aim was to determine the influence of aerobic activity on the dynamics of physical training and health promotion among students by involving cyclical sports in the physical culture classes at higher educational institutions. The teachers are advised to give consideration not to the sport results but to the students’ state of health at the physical culture classes. Traditionally formed classes directed at the fulfillment of control demands are not always effective in the context of health promotion. Special attention must be paid to the solution of health life and educational problems of students, formation of their methodical knowledge, raising in them a stable need in systematic exercising. Teachers should help students control the development of their physical qualities and teach them to make conclusions about their own health state.
The research results confirmed the supposition that physical exercises of cyclical character have a more positive influence on health dynamics, and the 100 % scale grade improves students’ physical activity.
