Do You Train In All 3 Planes?

When putting a training programme together then you need to make sure that you train your body in all 3 planes of movement. (Frontal/Coronal, Sagittal and Transverse). Below is a bit of help on what each plane means and types of exercises to include to make sure you are training in all 3 planes.

The frontal/Coronal plane divides your body into front and back halves. Despite the planes name the exercises you perform on the frontal plane consist of side to side rather than front and back motion. Movements of abduction and adduction such as side leg lifts and lateral raises are resistance training exercise you can try on the front plan. While star jumps and side steps are examples of cardiovascular exercises on the frontal plane.

The sagittal plane divides your body into right and left halves. Exercises include flexion and extension and forward and backwards movement happen in this plane. Bicep curls and squats are examples of resistance exercises for the sagittal plane. While running, walking, spotty dogs are all cardiovascular exercises that you can do to work in the sagittal plane.

The transverse plane divides your body into top and bottom halves. when you perform movements of rotation, you are working on the transverse plane of motion. Exercises that invoke twisting happen on this plane. V-sit twists, alternating oblique crunches are examples of resistance exercises, while alternating jab cross or hooks in boxing are examples of cardiovascular exercises that require you to work on the transverse plane of movement.
