Hi, I'm Jill Brown, I'm a certified fitness trainer for over 18 years. And today I'm talking to you from L.A. Dance Fit. We are going to discuss what plane of the body a bicep curl is done in. The body is divided up into three planes of motion. There's a sagittal plane, a transverse plane, and a frontal plane. Now if I were to divide my body into right and left halves and access right through my spine and belly button that would be the sagittal plane. So when I'm holding my dumbbells or a barbell, or cables, when I perform a bicep curl it's divided into right and left halves. Since I'm running along that vertical access that is the sagittal plane. So a bicep curl is performed in the sagittal plane of motion. I'm Jill Brown talking to you today from L.A. Dance Fit.
