Setup instructions

1) Stand tall with your chest up and core tight.

2) Hinge forward from the hips, keep the back flat and have a slight bend in the knees.

3) Hang your arms towards the floor - directly under your shoulders.

Perform instructions

1) With a slight bend in your elbows and arms fairly straight, slowly lift your arms forward (like a 'I').

2) Stop when your arms are somewhat parallel to the ground.

3) Pause for a second and lower them back to the starting position.

4) Lift the arms forward and out (like a 'Y'). Pause at the top and bring them back to the starting position.

5) Lift your arms outwards (like a 'T'). Pause at the top and bring them back to the starting position.

6) Repeat.

Note: for steps 4 & 5, twist the forearms in the direction you're lifting your arms in.
