DIAKADI DIY Tips Series: Episode 9

Author: Billy Polson

Your legs and pelvis, along with your spine, are the foundation for supporting your body and controlling your movement. Keeping them strong and functionally mobile will help with injury prevention, as well as keeping your lower back and spine pain-free.

While many of us include sagittal plane movements such as squats and dead lifts into our workout programs, we are still missing out on moving through the frontal plane by not doing lateral movements. You want your workouts to be completed by taking your body through all planes of motion in order to keep you body balanced and injury free.
