Y’s & I’s
The athlete holds onto the straps connected above and while leaning backward at approximately a 30 degree angle with feet forward pulls his or her body upright by spreading the hands outward without bending the elbows. The exercise starts with the scapula fully apart and extended, and finishes with both scapula as close together as possible.
