Benefits of exercise

Hip and shin flexion (one leg) of level 4 on FISIO functional loops is performed with outstretched arms in front of you.

This is a complex coordination exercise to develop the strength of the back of the legs and strengthen the muscles that straighten the spine. Holding your arms up reduces the area of contact with the floor and increases the level of difficulty, which requires more strength to maintain body stability while performing this exercise.

It is necessary to strive to prevent the loops from swinging by maximizing the tension of the back and abs muscles. Thanks to this, you can effectively develop your coordination and body balance during movement.

Working to improve balance, coordination and balance allows you to achieve efficiency and functionality in everyday movements that require good balancing.
