It's important to incorporate exercises that include movement in all three planes of movement since that's how we move in real life!
Our bodies move in the transverse plane when shoveling snow and chopping wood and also quite likely when you're moving groceries from your cart to your car, picking up your kids and moving them from one place such as the floor to another place like their chair, rotating the body to change the position. We rotate constantly....in fact, if you really pay attention you're actually moving in the transverse plane when you walk as you swing your arms and rotate through your thoracic spine....the mid back and portion of the spine that is connected to your ribs.
Transverse movements are incredibly important, and when designing training sessions it is important to create a balance of sagittal, frontal and transverse movements. This ensures that there is balance in how our muscles are being trained to move and allows us to move through our lives freely, gracefully, and with reduced chance of injury.
