The exercise of the week this week, is unique from past weeks. This exercise focuses on your core and lower back, but impacts your whole body.
Floor Y-T-I Raises
Exercise Form: This is a 3 exercise combination move, you’ll simply perform 8-12 repetitions of each exercise, one after the other without resting. (So do 8-12 reps of the “Y raise”, immediately followed by 8-12 “T raises”, followed immediately by 8-12 reps of the “I raise”.
Y Raise: Lie facedown on the floor with your arms resting on the floor, completely straight and at a 30 degree angle to your body, so they form a “Y”. Your palms should be facing each other, so that the thumb side of your hand points up. (image below)
T Raise: Perform this, like the Y raise, only move your arms so that they’re out to your sides - perpendicular to your body with the thumb side of your hand pointing up, raise them as high as you comfortably can.
I Raise: This time move your arms so that your body forms a straight line from your feet to your fingertips. Your palms should be facing each other, with the thumb side of your hand pointing up. Raise your arms as high as your comfortably can
Muscles Impacted: Your entire body is engaged during these workouts, primarily your lower and upper back, shoulders, triceps, and your core. Making this a great muscle toning exercise, no equipment necessary!
