Plain Talk About Movement Planes by Jonathan F. Healthy Living Professional Posted Wed 23 Apr 2008 7:00pm I admit it: I love this geeky science stuff. By understanding the “how’s” and “why’s” of what we do in the gym, exercises take on an entirely new meaning and an entirely new world of possibilities opens up before us.

Train Planes Of Motion, Not Just Muscles by Mark D. Healthy Living Professional Posted Tue 20 Apr 2010 12:41pm You should train planes of motion (or movements) and not just muscles.
