HOW TO DO A Y-T-I
1. Choose light dumbbells (do NOT use heavy weights for this) – trust us, it will still be challenging!
2. Prop yourself up on an incline bench (as seen in the photos below) or lie face down on a flat bench.
3. Grasping the dumbbells, lift both arms toward your head forming the letter “Y”.
4. Next, bring your arms out to your sides to form the letter “T”.
5. Lastly, bring your arms above your head with your elbows at your ears to form the letter “I”.
- As mentioned, choose a lightweight for this exercise
- Use slow and controlled motions
