Quadruped Shoulder Y’s and T’s With Resistance Band

Quadruped Shoulder Y’s and T’s With Resistance Band

Y’s and T’s are commonly practiced movements, and for good reason! These exercises will help strengthen the peri-scapular muscles including the mid and lower trapezius, serratus anterior, rotator cuff, and deltoid muscles. To maximize the benefit of performing these exercises, try these 2 tips. . 1.Place your contralateral arm on an elevated surface; I use a yoga block in the video. This will allow you to go through a more full range of motion. 2.Externally rotate the shoulder. This can be achieved by pointing your thumb towards the ceiling. In addition to opening up sub-acromial space, which will avoid shoulder impingement � This external rotation will help to better recruit the lower trapezius and rotator cuff muscles. . Note: Keep the core engaged to prevent rotation and/or extension of your low back!
