By recognizing the sequential body configuration and time shifts, it is possible to calculate the dynamic moment of inertia. Body, arm, and leg models were proposed in which possible configurations and influential mass distribution sizes were studied. Described is the choice of optimal models for modeling dynamic moments of inertia which are represented as the best approximation for the dynamic moment of inertia in a dynamic sense. Dynamic and physiological parameters (aerobic, aerobic-anaerobic and anaerobic stimuli) are load indexes based on the geometric progression of the metabolic processes (aerobic - index 3, aerobic-anaerobic – index 6 and anaerobic – index 12). For this purpose, the QBASIC program was used to calculate the weight gain for individual segments according to load indexes (index – 3, 6 or 12). A weight gain calculation program for individual segments according to load indexes of male and female bodies was used to calculate the mass, volume and thickness of silicone with and without the addition of lead balls or lead dust. The training process suit represents a three-layer suit where the suit layers are as follows: the first layer (Lycra) which adheres directly to the skin and which must have an elasticity factor that will satisfy the required flexibility and moisture absorption; the second layer (Silicone) the weight of which is proportionately distributed so that the weight of each segment of the second layer corresponding to each individual body segment is equal to the weight gain for that particular body segment; the third layer (Lycra) which is an outer layer and which is watertight but at the same time passes moisture outwards and is elastic. On this basis, a three-layer suit was made with proportionally distributed loads per individual body segments, which ensures proportional load of the segments and the whole body. Thus applied stimuli provide an even impact on the development of the musculoskeletal nervous system in the direction of the development of motor potentials at a high correlation level in the coordination of body motion in the chosen activity. Application, testing and measurement of the suit performance in certain sport movements (walking, running, pedaling, rowing, volleyball and basketball) were carried out using the POLAR measuring instrument and heart beat frequencies depending on intensity of the load were obtained. Based on the information obtained, the Training Process Suit can be used for sports training, recreational activities and for medical purposes when carrying out physical therapy.
