Benefits of exercise

The swimmer's start of level 1 alternately on the FISIO functional loops is performed with a small amplitude.

This exercise requires the activation of a large number of muscles, including the muscles of the legs, especially the shin, buttocks, cortex and upper body. It helps to develop strength and flexibility in all these areas. Swinging your foot backwards puts extra stress on your buttocks. By holding the body while standing on the toe, you can develop coordination and stability of your body.
