Benefits of exercise

The level 1 pistol on the FISIO functional hinges is carried out with the help of an additional support on the heel. 

It is designed to strengthen not only the quadriceps femoris and gluteus maximus, but also for stabilizing muscles and the balance system as a result of holding body weight and performing exercises with one leg. Holding the loops with both hands and using the heel support at the time of the exercise, the load is redistributed, making it easier to perform the movement. 

This exercise is very well suited for beginners to train their legs and prepares them for more complex strength exercises. It is very important to follow the correct technique and try to perform the exercise, focusing on the target muscle group.
