Moving in three dimensions: Part III
Vertical Plane Arm Circle
Welcome to Part 3 of our series, Moving in Three Dimensions, the Vertical (Frontal) Plane—another whole-body exercise using the space around your body to improve function. When you move in the vertical plane, you mobilize the shoulder and hip joints with a big arm circle that travels in front of the body, overhead and out to the sides as the weight shifts into a sideward lunge. In 3-D Workout, we load the muscles with light weights through a big range of motion that includes the deep rotators of the shoulder and hip joints.
