Hi guys. I've been getting a lot of questions that have been coming to my [xx] asking what can I do for my shoulders, what can I do for my posture and some tips and some advice on the best exercises that can be done to help really kind of bring things back. What we're going to do is I'm going to show you a combo of exercises that you can do all together.

And the great part about it is that when we're sitting in a desk all day or reading books we do so many things on the forward position, so we want to try to help bring you back a little bit. So what we're going to discuss is what I'm calling a YTA and it's safe for people that have shoulder issues like if your shoulder's popping or you feel something that's really uncomfortable when you just do regular presses or feeling some discomfort, this exercise is actually going to be something that I think you're going to be able to do and feel comfortable doing it, and like you said it's going to be working everything at the same time.

If you don't have access to a [xx]. Great and you can do this without it anyway. Because as I said it's actually the movement that you're [xx] that's going to help you out but if you need [xx] you can use anything that you have laying around the house. I personally used this [xx] I've been doing this for a long time so you want to keep the weight low and then at that point we need to start to go comfortable with it you can obviously increase the level of back up point.

So really think about [xx] we straight ahead even after all and your stomach, so just think about taking your belly up and pushing it back to your spine, you are also going to always look straight ahead, you're going to think you're pulling two glasses of water so imagine that you've got you're thumbs up and all you're going to do is make a Y and you're going to pause for two seconds from here you're going to come down into the T, hold for two seconds.

And then you're going to think about the water, so [xx] this way you're just going to bring it straight back, and what this does, it really kind of brings the shoulder plates together, it's going to open up your chest, where you will feel a really good stretch, and you're going to relax, and then repeat so here hold, sorry I'm here hold and then dive and hold and you want to do two sets of these trying to get to repetition and you start with that lightening the load, and if you're still having some issues you can may be work your way up, start, [xx] 10 fatigue.
