Prone Ys

Prone Ys

  • HOW: Lay down on the ground with a towel roll under the forehead. Or, lie on the corner of an elevated surface like your bed. Put your hands out in front of you in the shape of a โ€œYโ€. With your thumbs up, slowly lift your hands up in the air. Think of pulling your shoulder blades into your opposite back pockets.
  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles in the back of your shoulder blades working.
  • COMPENSATION: Donโ€™t shrug with your shoulders to lift your hands up. Your neck muscles will be active, but you shouldnโ€™t feel like you are primarily relying on them to lift your hands up.
