Look past the odd look of the Y-Raise Hold and you will find an exceptionally useful exercise for strengthening the mid-back and posterior shoulder area. This is the starting point for the Y-Raise continuum of exercises and can be extremely beneficial for any of those with a history of shoulder, thoracic spine or neck related issues. This version of the exercise is all about exposing those regions to load in a way that negates the front of the shoulder, and therefore places the load in key areas of stability and absorbing force.
