Benefits of exercise

Split squats on FISIO functional loops

This exercise involves the muscles of the anterior and posterior surfaces of the thigh, as well as the gluteal muscles and the muscles of the shin. The quadriceps femoris extends the knee, while the gluteus maximus extends the thigh along with the muscles of the posterior surface of the thigh. The muscles of the shin are involved in plantar flexion. 

Functional loops allow you to distribute the load and maintain balance by activating the body's stabilizer muscles. This exercise will help to build strong and muscular legs, strengthen the stabilizer muscles, develop and increase the amplitude of movement in the hip joints.
