Benefits of exercise

The forearm extension exercise with the palm resting on the 2nd level on the FISIO functional loops is performed with the body retracted.

This exercise develops flexibility and mobility of the wrist joint, strengthens the triceps muscle of the shoulder, rectus and transverse abdominal muscles. A flexible and strong wrist will prevent the occurrence of injuries associated with damage to joints and ligaments. This is relevant both in everyday life and in high-performance sports.

Follow the technique of performing the exercise by holding the body in a straight position. To get results, train regularly, choosing the load for your level of training.
