Benefits of exercise

The level 1 butterfly squat exercise on FISIO functional loops is performed in two movements. 

This exercise will help strengthen the upper body. Work out the muscles of the back, shoulders and hips. By holding your body by the handles, the grip and forearm are strengthened. The movements in this exercise require a good amplitude in the shoulder joint to open the thoracic region. The flexibility and mobility of the thoracic region have a positive effect on posture and overall body functionality. 

Regular practice of this exercise can help reduce the risk of back pain.
