Benefits of exercise

A is a level 2 lead on FISIO functional loops.

In this exercise, you can develop the strength of the muscles of the arms and back. Lifting the body from the lower point connects the muscles of the upper shoulder girdle to work. By maintaining a stable position of the whole body, the forearm, grip and core muscles are strengthened.

By performing the A - lead, you can achieve good results in exercises such as pull-ups, push-ups, bench presses, and various deadlifts. The triceps is responsible for the extension of the arm, and in these exercises it plays an important role.
