Benefits of exercise

The 2-level back lunge on the FISIO functional loops is performed with a hip lift.

This exercise can be useful if you are just starting to practice or if your body balance is poorly developed. The high hip lift allows you to use the muscles of the lower extremity girdle, namely the ilio-lumbar muscle, which is responsible for the movement of the hip in the hip joint, as well as for balance in the active phase of movement.

This is a great exercise to increase functional strength and a sense of coordination and balance. Focusing on the right technique will allow you to perform the exercise effectively and get excellent results.
