Benefits of exercise

The full tilt of the 4 levels on the FISIO functional loops is performed dynamically

This exercise is aimed at stretching the biceps of the thigh, back and calf muscles. Due to the fact that an additional squat is performed at the lower point, the biceps muscle receives maximum traction. For those with sufficiently developed flexibility, you can perform this exercise to feel the stretching of the biceps of the thigh. 

The biceps of the hip plays a huge role in exercises such as squats, lunges and deadlifts. If the muscle is not elastic, then it will be difficult to perform these exercises technically, since the muscles simply will not allow them to work in full amplitude. Therefore, to improve your technique in strength exercises, do not forget about stretching exercises.
