Stability Ball Y, T & I

Target area(s): back and shoulders

How to perform the stability ball Y, T and I:

Begin by lying on your stomach on a stability ball with dumbbells in your hand at your side. 

 

Extend your arms in front of you, forming the letter “Y”, with your facing upward.  Try squeezing your shoulder blades together to lift your arms. 

 

Now to form the letter “T”, keeping your arms parallel to the ground, move your arms until they are directly extended to the side of your body.  Keep squeezing your shoulder blades.

 

Lastly, for the letter “I”, your thumbs will be facing the ground, move your arms until they are next to your body.

 

Release and return to the starting position.

Complete 3 sets of 12-16 reps, resting for 60 seconds in between each set.
