Y Exercise On The Floor
Bored with planking and crunches to strengthen your core? Try challenge yourself by doing Ys on the floor.
This exercise will work on your upper back and shoulders:
Step One: Lie on the floor on your stomach with your face down and make a Y-shape with your hands by raising them above your head. Make sure your hands are wider than your shoulders.
Step Two: Pull yourself up (or your abs toward your spine) while ensuring that your hands are still making the Y-Shape and then lift them up from the ground.
Step Three: Hold this position for at least three seconds then lower yourself to the starting position. This will count as a single rep.
Step Four: Do three sets of eight reps.
