Benefits of exercise

Squat rotation under load level 1 on FISIO functional loops is performed in two movements.

Squatting is a multi-joint exercise that involves large muscle groups. The buttocks, thighs, and ankle are connected to the work.

Rotational movements help to develop muscle flexibility, which contributes to good mobility of the upper shoulder body. Side-to-side rotation improves the range of motion of the thoracic spine, which can be useful for performing other physical exercises or daily tasks. The exercise requires coordination of the movements of the arms, forearm and lower body, it helps to develop coordination and balance of the body. Maintaining an even body position during turns strengthens the muscles of the press.
