Benefits of exercise

The forearm extension exercise with a focus on the palm of the 1st level on the FISIO functional loops is performed alternately.

This exercise is aimed at strengthening the muscles of the arms, in particular, the triceps is actively involved here. Holding the bar throughout the exercise will help strengthen the core muscles. Moving to straight arms from the position of support on the forearms develops the strength and flexibility of the wrist. 

The wrist is one of the most complex joints, consisting of many muscles, bones, ligaments and nerve endings. The strength of the arms and the amplitude of movement largely depends on the work of the wrist, especially for professional athletes: weightlifters, crossfitters, powerlifters, kettlebellists, arm wrestlers. Therefore, it is necessary to develop wrist flexibility in order to comply with high-quality techniques during exercise.
