Benefits of exercise

Push-ups - crunch level 2 on FISIO functional loops is performed with a classic push-up.

This exercise strengthens the upper shoulder, chest muscles and rectus abdominis. As a result of a sedentary lifestyle, the pectoral muscles are often weak and shortened.  Push-ups will help to develop a large pectoral muscle, give it a more rounded shape and tighten the most problematic area, the triceps area, since the muscles of the back of the shoulder are actively activated when exiting the lower point during push-ups.

Strengthening the abs will help tighten the abdominal muscles. Following a healthy diet will bring you closer to a slim, well-defined physique.
