Benefits of exercise

A - level 1 retraction on the FISIO functional hinges is performed using a toe support.

This exercise will help strengthen the triceps and back muscles. This type of exercise does not require a large amplitude of movement in the elbow joint. Nevertheless, the triceps muscle is well connected to work. It is this muscle that takes on more stress in everyday life than the biceps.

If the muscles of the upper shoulder body are weak, in particular, the triceps and back, then this exercise is perfect for initial strengthening of these muscles. Because the additional support on the toe and the small amplitude give the optimal load for beginners.
