Benefits of exercise

A level 2 pistol on functional FISIO hinges.

This is a comprehensive exercise aimed at increasing the strength of the anterior surface of the thigh, developing flexibility of the muscles of the posterior surface of the thigh, as well as increasing mobility in the ankle, knee and hip joints.

The main target muscles that are involved in this exercise are the muscles of the anterior surface of the thigh and the gluteal muscles. Keeping the leg in the air creates enhanced stabilization activity for the gluteus maximus and ankle muscles.

Regular performance of this exercise will help to significantly improve leg strength, coordination, as well as stability in the knee and ankle joints, which is simply necessary for everyday life.
