* Shoulder pain is a frequent complaint of those who carry heavy weights. Having weaker shoulder muscles is often the cause of this. This also hampers one from doing all the yoga poses well as strong muscles are needed for some asanas. Doing the Wheel helps strengthen these muscle groups.

* Sitting for long hours at the desk may lead to a sort of hip-numbness. However, the wheel gives a good stretch to the hip flexors and while doing the exercise the hips should be pressed toward the sky.
