Fit Fridays: Exercising in the Three Planes of Motion

Fit Fridays: Exercising in the Three Planes of Motion

Planes of motionIt’s science, but not rocket science

There are three planes of motion in which the human body moves. If you think about it, we usually use a mixture of movements in different planes. Most of your movements aren’t side to side nor are they straight up and down especially when it comes to sports.  So you should never just train in one.

Prince Fielder on the c over of ESPN Magazine “The Body Issue:”

“You don’t have to look like an Under Armour mannequin to be an athlete,” says Fielder in the issue. “Just because you’re big doesn’t mean you can’t be an athlete. And just because you work out doesn’t mean you’re going to have a 12-pack. I work out to make sure I can do my job to the best of my ability. Other than that, I’m not going up there trying to be a fitness model.”

Fantastic.
