Benefits of exercise

Hip and shin flexion (one leg) of the 1st level on FISIO functional hinges is performed with additional support.

This is a very good strength exercise aimed at strengthening the back of the legs. 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, gait, balance, running and jumping. Performing the exercise with one leg allows you to increase the load on the target muscle groups, which makes it very effective.

When performing the exercise, one leg is placed on the floor in order to maintain a more stable body position, as well as to distribute the load between the legs, which allows you to better concentrate on the technique of performing the exercise and feel the tension in the leg muscles.

This exercise can be performed not only by advanced athletes, but also by people with an initial level of physical fitness.
