Other Exercises in Horizontal Plane of Motion Besides Row/Press Variations ??

    Bench Press, Push-ups, Seated Rows, Bent Rows, Inverted Rows, etc, all have to do with pushing away from or pulling toward something. Are there any other exercises in that same plane of motion? Sex excluded. (Just in case someone considers suggesting it, lol.)

    Vertical movement has much more flavor. Squats, shoulder press, deadlift, pull-ups, dips, shrugs, etc are vastly different kinds of movement all in the same plane.

    Is it just because... forward movement is pretty much limited to pushing/pressing something away from us or pulling something toward us?

    That's true. The front to back stuff is more boring, unless you're doing it to a hot guy.

    The body operates in a three dimensional plane of motion, so you should combine all different exercises to work it properly in every possible plane of motion.

    My biggest problem is I've never been on a plane with workout equipment. Where do you find these things?

    You don't need equipment, you screw in the bathroom while holding compact yoga positions. DOMS the next morning guaranteed!

    There are flyes and all their variations, but can't think of anything else really...

    I'm having trouble visualizing that. Care to fly with me so I can have a hands-on learning experience?

    Blech,

    Flyes are worse than Rows and Presses in my book. But you're right, that's the one I forgot to include. So pretty much, three basic movements, Presses, Rows and Flyes. Pushing, Grabbing and Hugging, lol.

    That's "Vertical" in the sense that you're going from top to bottom, not from back to front. Imagine what those ab exercises would be like if you were standing up. But thanks for the try <3

    so basically you're asking if they are more than three planes of movement, the three being sagittal, coronal, and transverse plane, or that your body can only push or pull weights? i think a six-year old can tell you the answer to that.

    and second, sahem was correct. back to front is a sagittal motion. transverse (horizontal as you call it) is rotational movement. many ab exercises can be transverse, particularly when you're working the obliques.

    Fuck standing up. Use an inversion table and "stand" upside down, then reach up to touch your toes. That's the absolute best ab workout I've ever done. icon_wink.gif

    The best ab exercise I ever did on my back was letting a 250 lb guy ride my cock.

    Back then I did anal because I was in a small town and thought I was the only gay guy in the world who didn't like it...had no idea there were others. So I did anal just to have a bf, although I was only a top (tried bottoming over 50 times and never took it even once).

    Since then I've realized there are 1000's of gay guys who also don't do anal. When I found out I was like WTF?! Yay! borat.gif

    If you're trying to do anything on the transverse plane, you have the pec deck machine, and like someone else said, flyes (flat, incline), bent over shoulder raise...any twisting movement also is good.

    I should have been more clear. I'm sorry about that. You're right, sagittal motion is exactly what I was referring to. To be more specific I was referring to upper body exercises that generally go from back to front that aren't focused on the abs (like crunches). Exercises like flyes, presses, and rows. Throw in the Pec Deck machine, like scar05 said. But outside of that... I guess there's not much variety, lol.

    Yeah? Go to BodyBuilding.com and take a look at all the exercises for each muscle group. There are several variations on presses and rows.

    I get that there are tons of variations but they're essentially the same movement, Press, Fly, Pullover, Row. Incline Lying Row with XYZ grip, isn't really the kind of variety I'm talking about. It's not the same as say, Deadlifts, Leg Curls, Upright rows, Shoulder Press; or Shrugs, Pullups, Lat Pulldowns, Dips, Pushdowns.

    I'm starting to regret putting it out there, lol.
