Anterior to Posterior Transverse Plane Lunge-Dumbbells

by Anthony Carey, MA

Description

The anterior to posterior transverse plane lunge takes the stance hip and creates a lot of rotation as the pelvis moves around it. Step to 2:00 on the clock with your left foot and then immediately push right back to 8:00. And then push again all the way across your body. Each time having to decelerate the gravitational loads on your body as you cross over. If we wanted to regress this exercise, shorten the distance of the actual lunge and lighten the resistance of the dumbbells. After you do this motion on the left leg, repeat it with the right leg.
