Benefits of exercise

Pull-ups with a parallel grip of level 1 on FISIO functional loops are performed using leg strength.

Parallel pull-ups develop the strength of the biceps and the widest muscle. This pull-up option is suitable for those who do not know how to perform cool pull-ups on a horizontal bar. With the help of your legs, you can push yourself up, thereby reducing the load on the grip and arm muscles. Gradually strengthening the grip and biceps of the shoulder, you will be able to move on to more difficult levels of pull-ups.
