By performing this exercise, you’ll reinforce the posterior fascial compartment of the thighs. Not only that, but you’ll also get better control of your pelvis and back, a fundamental structure to our daily locomotion. Your lower body, as you know, is the basis of your movement; this way, this area of your body should be reinforced not only with muscular work but also with increasing coordination.

The necessity to reinforce your posterior muscles, today, is becoming even more important because we spend most of our day seated. The seated position created muscular imbalances reduces your muscles and their strength and elasticity. It also increases the tension in your lower back.

By adding suspension to this exercise, you’ll increase the knees, hip and back stabilisation and also better muscular coordination, for a better movement.
