Benefits of exercise

Hip and lower leg flexion of the 2nd level on FISIO functional hinges is performed with the feet fixed under the attachment point.

This functional exercise loads the buttocks, shin muscles and the entire back of the thighs well. The purpose of this exercise is to develop the muscles around the hips and buttocks, as well as strengthen and develop the hip joint, which provide a large amplitude of movement of the lower legs, namely flexion, stretching, retraction, reduction and rotation.
