Basic principles of training – Planes of motion 03

Planes of motion 03


There are 3 planes of motion that movement can take place in, including the sagittal, frontal and transverse!

The #sagittal plane is where movement occurs forwards (anterior) and backwards (posterior) of the body and include movements involving flexion and extension! An example of this would be a dumbbell front raise or standing barbel bicep curl!

The #frontal plane is where movement occurs lateral to the body so any movements that involve abduction (lateral movement away from the body) or adduction (medial movement towards the body) An example of this would be a lateral dumbbell raise or a lateral lunge!

The #transverse plane relates to any rotation involved in a movement! For example good-mornings or any core training that requires rotation!

A lot of exercises involve movement in all three planes of motion such as the #squat!

Practical application – when it comes to training make sure you involve exercises that work in all 3 planes of motion to prevent injury!
