Physical development is a continuous and complex process of morphological and physiological changes taking place in the body. It is manifested by the increase of the human's height and the body mass, and also changes of sex matters. Body height, weight and chest circumference are anthropometrical parameters which are characterizing physical development of a child and a youth. We analysed anthropometrical data of boys, aged 17-20 years. We observed the definitive age of boys at the age of 18 years. All average parameters were stable at the age of 19 years. Comparing the findings of boys' physical development with data of other scientists, we found similar data. Acceleration of body height was not observed. The average BMI data had a normal range in all the age groups.
