Many affiliate exercise with stereotypical associations encouraged or identified by sciences and society. Science, gyms, disease risk, aesthetic appeal, health and wellness, medicine, and the like. Yet it is less than often that people look at exercise as achieving a higher level of thought. Yes, I am talking about exercise philosophy. Now, I’m not saying people do not think, or that achieving a higher perspective of the self has no been present in the likeness of yoga or tai chi, but society does not associate exercise with experiencing deep thought.

Our bodies are designed to move. This is very evident in that we have legs that allow us to not only crawl, hop and walk, but also run, jump and skip (yes, adults should still be skipping and hopping). Our arms and torso are also designed to help us move and play an important role in our gait (if you don’t believe, then start walking now and watch how your arms and torso help to move the rest of your body). When done properly, exercise will enhance the ability of our bodies to move.
I am going to tell you all about something readily present to all moving organisms, but a like a visually stunning insect, is often overlooked. I am talking about the pot-o-gold, the unicorn, the Lucky Charms of movement. Indeed, I am talking about the…. TRANSVERSE PLANE OF MOTION! What is this transverse plane you ask? Well to understand the most neglected and challenging plane of motion, you must understand the other main two.

Myofascial Release Part 3 I got some feedback from readers that I’m writing a little too technically. Sorry everyone, when I get in science mode it’s hard to get out! This time around I’ll try my best to make things as understandable as possible, but feel free to comment with questions or requests for further explanation.
