Benefits of exercise

The level 5 bar on the FISIO functional hinges is performed with alternate straightening of the arms.

A more complex version of the plank, in which not only is there not stable support in the legs, but also a reduced fulcrum in the upper part of the body. This exercise is aimed at developing coordination, strength and general endurance. Visually, a simple exercise in the process of execution will make you concentrate on balance and hand movement.

This powerful static exercise will work not only the abdominal muscles, but also the muscles of the back, hips and buttocks. Try to include it in your training program and observe the development of your coordination.
