Benefits of exercise

The loop bench press (bars) of level 3 on FISIO functional loops is performed with straight legs.

The loop press in this version gives an additional load on the shoulder stabilizers. An unstable support works out your coordination motor abilities. The shoulder and elbow joints are strengthened. The biceps muscle of the shoulder is strengthened, which takes over the load in other basic exercises.

A strong triceps will help you progress in exercises such as bench press.
