Climbing exercises like Pull-Ups and Chin-Ups develop the Latissimus Dorsi Muscle (Lats)!
Strengthening your Lats provides amazing abilities, one of the greatest is the transverse plane of motion (torso rotation),
The Lats are the main muscle in the posterior slings that rotates our torso left and right or flex it side to side!
Anyone that can perform great feats of motion has highly developed Lats from climbing exercises like Pull-Ups and Chin-Ups!
Lat development improves agility so you can change direction, twist, rotate or flex sideways faster!
You can actually move a heavier person than yourself using the powerful transverse plane of motion by rotating your torso with an arm outstretched!
That’s right, the transverse plane is the greatest physical power and generally only known of by Eastern block boxers and Martial artists!
We stand upright from climbing movement patterns!
To climb we remain as close as possible to the vertical wall, tree or object we’re scaling, then when back on ground level it was a simple task to remain vertical in a balanced state by holding our torsos upright with our Lats!
Being upright and vertical straightens your spine, reduces gravitational loads and strengthens the diagonal posterior muscle slings that are so significant in producing fast changes of direction!
In terms of increasing your metabolic rate; your Lats span your back from the top down for remarkable gains in lean muscle mass,
