Incorporating Planes Of Movement Into Your Training

Have you ever thought about incorporating different planes of movement into your training? ๐Ÿค”

Aka๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Instead of forward walking lunges, what about side to side?

When it comes to movement, you can physically move in 3 different planes ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Frontal, sagittal & transverse. Incorporating all of them into your training ensures you're moving your body through its full range of motion. ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

โž– The frontal plane splits your body into front & back halves. Any lateral movements occurs in this plane. Ex. Side to side lunges, shuffling or chest flys.

โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

โž– The sagittal plane splits your body into left & right halves. Any forward or backward movements occurs in this plane. Ex. Front/back lunges, squats, deadlift & bench press.

โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

โž– The transverse plane splits your body into top & bottom halves. Typically any twisting movement will occur in this plane. Ex. Sledgehammer swings or abdominal rotational twists.
