Benefits of exercise

Bow pose on functional FISIO hinges.

This exercise is aimed at stretching the anterior surface of the thigh, the iliolumbar muscle and the abdominal muscles. The iliac muscle is involved in many movements of our body, and it is very vulnerable. If this muscle is in constant tension, a spasm occurs, pain occurs in the lumbar region, extension in the hip joint is disrupted, and posture worsens. To prevent such disorders, a comprehensive approach is needed: strengthening the muscles of the back, abs and stretching of the iliac muscle and quadriceps femoris. This exercise will help to effectively develop the flexibility of these muscles and reduce pain.
