Benefits of exercise

The 4-level backstroke on the FISIO functional loops is performed without touching.

An effective functional exercise that, in addition to the target muscle groups of the lower body and the auxiliary muscles of the upper body, allows you to work out coordination qualities. Keeping the leg in the air creates enhanced stabilization activity for the gluteus maximus. The exercise can be difficult, as it requires increased attention to maintaining balance, which causes the muscles of the trunk to work much more actively. Their task is to stabilize the body. The muscles of the arms hold the correct position of the body and distribute the level of load on the muscles of the legs.

It is necessary to perform the exercise with the correct technique, giving an optimal load on the muscles. This way you can increase the effectiveness of your training.
