Benefits of exercise

Dolphin on functional FISIO hinges.

This exercise is useful for developing flexibility of the thoracic and lumbar spine, which has a positive effect on posture. Bending back stretches the abdominal muscles, improves the mobility of the spinal column. The dolphin exercise can be performed before training in order to warm up and stretch the muscles, and after training to relax the muscles.
