Let’s think about it.

If the majority of the muscles attached to the spine are orientated diagonally (the “Serape effect”), it would make sense they therefore are designed to make us rotate. If that’s the case, do you think we should help train our clients and ourselves to be able to move well in rotation? Seems like a no-brainer.

Why, then, are so many traditional strength programs highly sagital plane dominant?(click on this link to learn more about the three planes of motion). In the attached video, Pete Holman, inventor of the TRX Rip Trainer describes what Asymmetrical Bar Training (ABT) is, why it is so important for you and your clients to add into your programming and how you can do it.

This video is well worth a watch if you are interested in helping your clients train how they move when they want to produce large amounts of strength to perform movements such as throwing, doing any type of martial art or playing golf. It is also how they move through daily life. If you would like to learn how to use the TRX Rip Trainer jump onto our next TRX Rip Course nearest you.
