E131 | The Three Planes Of Movement

On this Friday short Doc Danny covers the three planes of movement, sagittal, frontal, and transverse. Danny first describes each plane of movement and our tendency to work in the sagittal plane.

The problem with having a heavy training bias toward the sagittal plane is that life does not have that same bias.  The lateral and rotational deficiencies that develop because of this bias can lead to movement inefficiencies and potentially injury.   

Applying a touch of transverse and frontal plane movement, especially trunk related movements, can have a tremendous positive carryover.  Asymmetrical carries and 5-10-5 shuttle runs are great ways to cover the frontal plane.  Ball slams twists, chops and lifts can really provide great training stimulus in the transverse plane
