Correlation of Physical Fitness and Professional Military Training of Servicemen
This article demonstrates that physically trained military personnel are more skilful and perform professional military actions much faster than poorly trained soldiers do. We have shown that, regardless of the characteristics of the professional activity of any military experts, its effectiveness is closely linked to their level of physical fitness, which in turn plays a significant role in the formation of the professional skills and capabilities of military experts. To assess the military and applied skills of servicemen, we have researched them performing exercises and meeting combat training standards (shooting machine guns, loading tank ammunition, constructing a single trench for shooting, etc.). The results of the exercise and performance assessment enabled the determination that physical training of troops is closely linked to combat training and contributes to improving the professional skills of military personnel.
