4 Lateral Movement Exercises You Have to Try

August 06, 2015 2 min read

Whether you're trying to get in shape or you're trying to stay in shape, it's crucial to mix up your workout routine. If you get in a rut, due to boredom, you'll be more likely to give up altogether just to give your brain a rest from trying to pretend you like what you're doing. One of the best ways to mix it up is read up on new techniques to incorporate into your routine. Learning a new move can take you to another level, and make you feel utterly accomplished when you get it down. https://www.instagram.com/p/BJRERAMBZPg/?taken-by=bodyrockofficial Celebrity fitness trainer Harley Pasternak gives us four lateral movement exercises to try. “A lot of the weaknesses we have are based on a lack of lateral movement, which can set you up for injury,” Pasternak explained. “When you exercise in multiple planes, you see improvements in balance, mobility and function.” 1. Side-Shuffles On your morning run? When you turn a corner, incorporate this exercise for a block, and then return to your run or even a walk to switch it up. Make sure to do round two with your other foot forward. 2. Grapevines Have a long hallway? This is a perfect place to grapevine up and down! Make sure to alternate feet on your way back! 3. Lateral Lunges Forward lunges are great, but it's always good to switch it up. Pick up one free weight and lunge deeply from side to side. 4. Step Across This one will give you a fun boost of energy as you press up. Try heading to the park and doing this on a bench, starting on the left side with your right foot on the bench and pressing up, bringing your left foot behind you and then across to the right side of the bench. Do you incorporate any of these four fun exercises into your routine? If you want an always exciting, real time workout series, sign up for SweatFlix℠!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
