    Brooks I saw 3 excellent HS training techniques in videos. All 3 in Sagittal plane. Any suggestions for Transverse plane training?

      Hi Kevin! Thanks for the comment. Typically I stay in the sagittal plane if I’m programming specifically for hamstrings. Usually sagittal plane has the highest EMG activity — Nordics, leg curls, GHD hip extension, kettlebell swings, supine straight leg bridge, stiff-leg deadlift, etc. (Bourne et al. 2017). To add a transverse plane component, I would incorporate single leg work. Then movement is occurring in sagittal plane, but must be stable in frontal and transverse.
