Five Exercises to Get You Out of the Sagittal Plane

As CrossFitters we spend a lot of time within the sagittal plane in our WODs and training. What we mean by that is when you walk into the CrossFit gym you can just about count on the fact that you will be doing most of the exercises for the day in a 10×10 square in which your legs and arms typically only travel in one direction (up and down or forward and backward). Here are five exercises you can incorporate into your workouts to work multiple planes of motion brought to you by the doctors over at the Active Life.

  1. Single-leg deadlift
  2. Suitcase deadlift
  3. Single-arm carry
  4. Weighter’s squat
  5. Single-arm high pull
