Benefits of exercise

Hip extension (one leg) of 3 levels on FISIO functional hinges is performed with the foot fixed under the attachment point.

This is an excellent strength exercise aimed at developing the strength of the back of the thigh and buttocks. Creating an unstable support with the help of functional loops creates a high level of complexity and involves a huge number of muscles in the work.

The target muscles are the posterior surface of the thigh, the muscles of the shin, and the buttocks. These muscles are of key importance in everyday life and are responsible for the vertical position of the body, posture, gait and balance during movement.

This is an excellent exercise to increase the functional strength of the legs, strengthen the lumbar spine, develop the muscles of the buttocks and abs as the main stabilizers when performing this movement.
