Benefits of exercise

The level 2 circular crunch exercise on FISIO functional loops is performed on straight arms. 

This is a more complex version of the execution, which involves not only the muscles of the body, but also the upper shoulder section, which takes on the supporting load. The circular trajectory of movement allows you to effectively work out the rectus abdominis and obliques.

The oblique abdominal muscles are involved daily in turns, body tilts, in the process of breathing, and protect internal organs. Strengthening these muscles will improve the overall physical condition, have a positive effect on posture and body stability.
