Tightening agents

A big advantage is the tightening effect of the tires. Because the pressure stimulates the blood circulation, this means that toxins stored in the tissue are better transported away.

You should only take a break when it starts to burn." Incidentally, it is also tight inside. Because tensing the middle trains the pelvic floor Perfect.
