Benefits of exercise

The level 1 weightlifter on the FISIO functional hinges is performed at an angle, the arms are threaded into the straps.

This exercise trains not only the lower part of the body, but also connects the muscles of the back. Such squats require good mobility in the chest and shoulders. An even back throughout the entire approach requires the connection of stabilizer muscles. 

This exercise is considered an excellent summing exercise that anyone can do. Since you need to squat at an angle, it will be a little easier to maintain your posture - this will allow you to gradually hone the technique of the exercise and move on to more difficult levels.
