TECHNIQUE TUESDAY 🛠

The A-T-A is great exercise to target the entire Posterior Chain; activating the glutes, hamstrings, upper/middle/lower back, shoulders and triceps. We recommend starting with little or no weight; 2 lb. dumbbells are being used in this video.

Lying prone position on the floor with feet together or hugging a ball (as seen in this video) slowly lift the legs, then arms forming an “A”. Glide the arms up to a “T”, returning back to “A” to complete the movement. Keep the core gently activated throughout the movement and avoid jerking or thrusting. Be sure to intentionally engage ALL of the targeted muscles and avoid excessive hyperextension of the lower back.

Breathe deeply throughout the movement. As ALWAYS, work within YOUR pain free range of motion.
