Core and Abs: "I"s, "Y"s, and "T"s
These are great core and abdominal exercise because they isolate your core, stabilize your spine, and help you work out properly.
"I"s- Arms straight overhead, thumbs toward the ceiling, legs are always active and feet off the ground. Tuck the hips under, tuck the chin. Your arms/shoulder blades should be the only things moving. Avoid shrugging.
"Y"s- Same position, only arms are wider.
"T"s- Same positions, only arms out to the sides.
I have posted a series of foundational exercises on The Fuerte Fitness YouTube Channel.
You can find them all by searching my channel for "Core and Abs." You will also get inspiration and ideas for your fitness routine, tips for proper exercise positioning and techniques, and full-length workouts.
