How to Do the T Pose for a Back Workout

Learn how to do the T pose from certified personal trainer Max Tapper in this home back workout for men video from Howcast.


Hi, guys. This is Max Tapper again for Howcast. And what I'm going to show you guys how to do today is some shoulder stabilization exercises, in the prone position. So, prone shoulder stabilization series. Now there's going to be five different components of this, and they're all going to be different poses. One is going to be called the I pose. The second one is going to be called the Y pose. The third one is going to be called the T pose. Fourth the W pose. Fifth the O pose. Okay?

Now, as I go down I'll show you how they work. This prone shoulder stabilization series is going to be targeted at strengthening your rotator cuff muscles. Alright now. These are the same muscles that pitchers blow out from throwing. That people just injure doing bench, and boxing, whatever the case is. These are one of the exercises that are very, very good at strengthening your shoulders. So let me show you how these work. Okay?

Now, the third exercise in this is going to be called the T pose. Basically, it's a T because our arms are going to be out to the side. Same position in terms of where our hands are. Facing out, facing each other. And we lift. Pinch those shoulder blades back to start. Ten second hold. And down. Then we do it again. And down.
