Benefits of exercise

Level 3 archer push-ups on FISIO functional loops.

This exercise combines static loading, which effectively works out the abdominal muscles, and dynamic push-ups to work out the pectoral muscles and triceps. Due to the fact that the weight is transferred from one arm to the other, the stabilizer muscles are actively activated and the load on the triceps of the shoulder and the pectoral muscle increases. This version of the exercise is very similar to conventional push-ups, but still requires greater arm strength and body stability.
