This was my 7th week as an intern of The Rack Athletic Performance Center. This week continued from last week’s focus on joint specific study, this time revolving around everything about the hip joint. I learned about how the hip moves functionally in application to sport performance, emphasizing specifically on movements in the sagittal plane. Nearly all sports are performed by athletes moving in some sort of direction and change of direction. While many sports have multidirectional movements such as laterally shuffling or rotating about the hip to make a play, movement in the sagittal plane is one of the most commonly performed. This makes sagittal plane movement highly important when it comes to training, improvement, and performance.
