Benefits of exercise

The pistol is a 2-level back lunge 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.

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. This exercise is quite intense, which has a good effect on training general strength endurance.
