Benefits of exercise

The lunge to the side is alternately 2 levels on the FISIO functional loops.

This exercise is perfect for working out the gluteal muscles. During the lunge to the side, the quadriceps, buttocks and adductor muscles of the thigh work. Since lunging to the side requires a large range of motion in the hip and knee joints, this exercise helps to develop not only strength, but also flexibility.

During the exercise, you need to maintain the stability and balance of the body. This requires activation of the cortex and back muscles.  Additional support helps to keep your back in a straight position and smoothly lunge.
