Benefits of exercise

The level 1 peak on the FISIO functional loops is performed with support on the forearms

This exercise combines two elements: static and inverted pose. A static position strengthens the muscles of the cortex, and an inverted position has a positive effect on the outflow of blood from the lower extremities, which reduces the risk of varicose veins, improves pelvic blood circulation and blood supply to the brain. 

By performing the "peak" exercise on loops, you will be able to independently perform this difficult element and feel the benefits of such an unusual load for the body.
