Benefits of exercise

Stretching the widest on the FISIO hinges.

The widest muscle is one of the largest muscles in the body, and its limited movement can lead to an imbalance in the work of joints and other back muscles. Shortening of the widest muscle reduces the amplitude of movement in the shoulder joint, leads to the formation of spasms and pain. This can reduce the quality of life and limit the ability to perform everyday tasks.

Performing the exercise stretching the widest muscle on FISIO loops will help improve the elasticity of muscle tissue, relieve tension, improve posture and align shoulders.

In loops, you can stretch the widest muscle as effectively as possible by stretching from your own weight. You won't need the help of an instructor or a partner.  Holding the handles of the loops, allow your body to relax and slowly stretch the muscles with good amplitude.
