Abstract

 

Functional training initially applied only in rehabilitation centers for war veterans has become very popular lately in the fitness community. You need to be able to perform physically, not just look good. Training using the sandbag for fitness forces the body to become stronger and more agile in different postures, it trains you to move more efficiently and to carry out daily activities more easily and efficiently. By means of physical exercises, you are forced to overcome any situation that you encounter in the military environment and, in order to improve this capacity, you must use training programs that imitate the activities of daily living.
