I have been neglecting the W part of this routine. I do ITYs, but now I will add Ws. WITYs!

Tonight's Yoga With Adriene had us on our stomach, holding superman pose for a couple minutes so I added in the Y,T,W,I raises. Tiny, but effective.

If we overwork our upper traps (think shrugging) and underwork the lower traps, "shoulders can roll forward, causing poor posture, as well as cervical (neck) tension or pain, rotator cuff injury accordion to Aaron Brooks, a biomechanics expert and owner of Perfect Postures in Auburndale, Mass.

Try these simple moves to hit those important traps, sitting on a swiss ball, on a bench, lying on the floor or in bed if need be.

These are tiny movements but they can be challenging. Just try 1 or 2 of each then see how you feel. Stop if you feel any pain.

Y-RAISE: Lie facedown and start with your arms straight so that your arms and body form a "Y" shape. Make a thumbs-up with your hands, so that your thumbs point to the ceiling. Keeping your arms straight and in the Y shape, lift your arms up off the ground (but not your head and neck), and slowly return to start.

T-RAISE: Start as you did for the Y raise, but with your arms out to the sides so your body forms a T. Again with thumbs up, raise and lower your arms.

W RAISE: Bend your arms at the elbows so that you form a W shape. Squeeze your shoulder blades together to bring your elbows up off the ground and towards one another.

I RAISE: Straighten your arms again and point them straight over your head, so your body forms a straight line, like a capital I. With thumbs up, raise your arms as you did for the Y and T raises.

BONUS/ALTERNATE CHALLENGE: Make it a two-for-Tuesday with two forms of cardio...

walk/run
walk/dance
two different cardio machines if you belong to a gym
a walk then a short cardio video
2 different cardio videos

Whatever works for you.
