Benefits of exercise

Y stretching on FISIO functional hinges.

This exercise will help to stretch the pectoral muscles and deltoids. Shortened pectoralis major and minor muscles lead to general discomfort in the body. Hypertrophied muscles will bring the shoulders forward, the muscles of the upper and middle back will become weaker, and stoop will appear.

With heavy force loads on the chest, there is a risk of serious injury: stretching, tearing of muscle fibers, tearing of tendons. For full-fledged competent work, it is necessary to combine strength training and exercises to develop flexibility.
