Benefits of exercise

The level 3 pistol on the FISIO functional hinges is performed with a deep squat. 

This exercise strengthens the lower body. The buttocks, quadriceps and calf muscles are included in the work. Performing an exercise with support on one leg, stabilizer muscles are connected, which control the movement of the body and maintain balance. A deep squat develops flexibility and elasticity of the muscle tissues of the lower body and improves joint mobility.

Functional FISIO loops provide additional support and stability, which allows you to perform the exercise with the right technique and maximum efficiency.
