Benefits of exercise

The 3-level side plank on the FISIO functional hinges is made with a reduced support.

This is an effective functional exercise to strengthen the oblique abdominal muscles. Keeping your free leg in the air complicates this exercise and allows you to increase the load on the oblique abdominal muscles to ensure better stabilization of the body. Maintaining the correct position requires the participation of the back muscles, which helps strengthen the upper body.

The side slats activate both internal and external muscles involved in body tilts, as well as stabilize the spine and pelvis. Strengthening these muscles plays an important role in fitness and in daily life.
