Core Training Concepts – Drilling the Transverse Plane

Here’s a video of me taking my students from this year’s Master Course. There is a reason I’m likely only going to do one of these per year. Not because I don’t thoroughly enjoy it, but because of the toll it takes on my brain to cover the concepts we employ at FP in 6 weeks. In this video we drill the transverse twist, one of the most brain wracking exercises in our system to teach. The second you move outside the frontal and sagittal plane of motion things just get entirely to complicated. With that said, the results that come from a body that learns rotation effectively are pretty spectacular!

The class of 2015 shows some serious promise. They will be game changers anywhere they go and I couldn’t be happier with the turnout we have had for this year!

    The smallest corrections can make the largest improvements.

    So that makes sense but I’m failing to see how something like that is “better.” Like not activating your shoulders or delts to move the weight horizontally? Why is it a bad thing to use your delts in a horizontal movement like that? Your science/philosophy makes sense…in terms of have s stable and solid postural base. I’m just not understanding some of the movement philosophies.

      Sorry sir, but it’s difficult to conceptualize this over a screen. When you feel it, you’ll get it.
