I’m always talking about the importance of strengthening a given muscle through range in all three planes of motion. The same multiplanar approach can, and I believe should be, taken with stretches.
In the short video above, I demonstrate a number of multiplanar variations I commonly use within a hamstring and hip flexor stretch.
As runners and triathletes, we often get so hooked-up with training, strengthening and stretching in ‘straight lines’ predominantly in the sagittal plane. Breaking this up and working into all three planes is so beneficial for our general athletic development, and avoiding common imbalances that lead to injury 🙂
