Benefits of exercise

Hip extension of the 2nd level on FISIO functional hinges is performed with the fixation of the feet under the attachment point.

By doing this exercise, you can strengthen the gluteal muscle and thigh muscles.  In addition to the work of the lower body, the muscles of the cortex are involved, which helps to improve coordination and balance of the body. Unstable support puts a strain on the muscles of the lower leg. Throughout the exercise, you need to keep your feet at one point.

Hip extension in loops is an interesting variant of the usual gluteal bridge. This exercise option is suitable for both beginners and experienced athletes.
