Benefits of exercise

A level 3 oblique crunch on FISIO functional hinges is performed with one leg fixed. 

This exercise is aimed at developing powerful abdominal muscles. Keeping the free leg in the air puts additional stress on the body stabilizers and improves balance. In this exercise, in addition to maintaining balance, it is necessary to focus on the main working muscle, feel tension in the abdominal area.

Try to perform this difficult coordination exercise if you have only basic twists on the press lying on the mat in your arsenal.
