Benefits of exercise

A sideways lunge in balance (one hand) of level 3 on FISIO functional loops is performed with a jump.

This version of the exercise is performed using a plyometric load. This allows you to develop explosive muscle strength. The development of explosive power increases the rate of muscle mass growth and increases the effectiveness of training. These criteria are especially important in professional sports.

This exercise is also aimed at developing coordination, improving overall and strength endurance.
