Benefits of exercise

The level 5 backstroke on the FISIO functional loops is performed diagonally without touching.

This is an excellent coordination exercise that loads the muscles of the legs and buttocks, and also allows you to fully use the body's stabilizer muscles. This exercise is dominated by the quadriceps femoris and the gluteus maximus. In addition, when holding the loops with your hands, the muscles of the trunk work more actively, which are designed to stabilize the spine.

With regular performance of this exercise, the stability and mobility of the hip, knee and ankle joints increases. The sense of balance and balance improves. The muscles become strong and elastic, and the overall physical shape improves.
