Benefits of exercise

The level 3 butterfly squat on FISIO functional loops is performed with a hip lift.

This exercise with a reduced fulcrum works not only the muscles of the hips, shoulders and back, but also trains coordination abilities. The consistency of simultaneous hand and foot work requires good communication between muscles and the brain. 

Such coordination of movements is useful for athletes. This allows them to better control their body, focus on specific tasks, and improve movement accuracy. Balance training is an integral part of every athlete.
