Benefits of Rotational Training
Most exercise programs are mostly made up of movements in the sagittal and frontal planes. These planes are great for getting strong and building muscle, but our joints don’t just move in one direction. The transverse plane deals with twisting and rotating the body and is where athletic and fluid human movements happen. Training rotational movements connect and unify the body, forcing mind-muscle communication to accomplish complex tasks. Failure to include rotational training in an exercise routine can lead to energy leaks in the muscular system when a rotational movement is required in life or in sport. Rotational training allows us to keep joints healthy and express our full movement potential.
