START: Lie face up on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Place your hands and arms on the floor in the high five position—your palms facing up with your elbows bent 90 degrees and your upper arms perpendicular to your torso.

MOVEMENT: Keeping your elbows, wrists, and hands pressed into the floor, squeeze your shoulder blades together and slide your elbows down to your sides as far as you can. Pause for a second or two. Then slowly slide your arms up and out—so that they form a "Y"—while keeping your hands in contact with the floor. When your arms are straight or your hands start to lose contact with the floor, pause for 2 seconds, then slide back down again and repeat.
