How to do a Letter I Press Up:
Position your head right next to a wall, upside down, so your face is pointing away from the wall. Place your hands beside your head. Kick your legs up so they are lined up straight with the wall. Push your upper body off of the ground until your elbows are straight. Lower yourself down until your head gently touches the floor and repeat.

Why a Letter I Press Up works:
Letter I Press up works so well because all the weight of your body is being held up by your shoulder muscles.
Ideally, try to keep your body as straight as you can. This will be difficult but is something to work toward. You can develop shoulder problems quickly with this exercise so be careful with it.
Breath out as your push away from the ground. Breath in as you lower yourself down.
