Benefits of exercise

The lunge towards level 3 on the FISIO functional loops is performed with a hip lift.

This complex coordination exercise allows you to train the adductor muscles of the legs as effectively as possible. The muscles of the thighs and buttocks take the main burden on themselves. The large adductor muscle helps in stretching, and other adductors work mainly to stabilize the hip.

Functional loops allow you to maintain balance and control the load on the target muscle groups by holding yourself with two hands. Try to fully concentrate on doing this exercise. Proper execution technique is the key to success.
