Benefits of exercise

The exercise is extending the forearm with emphasis on the palm of the 3rd level on the functional loops of FISIO.

This exercise works out the triceps, shoulders, abs and develops wrist flexibility. When working regularly with free weight: barbell, kettlebells, dumbbells, wrist flexibility plays a huge role. In some cases, with a sedentary wrist, an athlete cannot perform exercises efficiently and technically, because of this, the load on the elbow and shoulder joints increases. 

By performing these exercises, you can work on the muscles of the forearm and wrist joint, improving its flexibility and mobility. This in turn reduces the risk of injury when working with large weights.
