Y’s                                                            T’s

  

                         L’s                                                       W’s

These are four staple exercise for our posture and shoulder patients.

Keep the thumbs pointed towards the ceiling with the Y, T and W’s.

Don’t force the motion at the top.  Keep it comfortable.  Keep neck in neutral position.

We initially start with 12-15 reps with no weight and progress to 3 sets.  Then we add 1 pound weights and progress.  If you experience pain (not the burning pain assoc. w/ effort) stop and consult a qualified practitioner.  

These are deceiving little exercises that are guaranteed to get your postural and rotator cuff muscles fired up!  Enjoy.

Get Strong! Stay Strong!
