Triangle Sit Exercise is very similar to Downward Dog Pose in Yoga. It works the shoulders tremendously and helps you get a good stretch in your hamstrings.
How to do a Triangle Sit Exercise:
Position your feet about shoulder width apart. Position your hands about shoulder width a part about 3 or 4 feet away from your feet. Straighten both your legs and your arms and stick your butt high into the air. You will look like a triangle in this pose. Hold.
Muscle group worked:
Most of your body but especially your shoulders.
Target Repetitions for Muscle Tone/Endurance: 60 seconds
Why a Triangle Sit Exercise works:
Triangle Sit Exercise works really well because it puts a great deal of pressure on your shoulders. Especially since your arms are straight, your shoulders are doing most of the work to keep your body in this position.
Try your best to keep your legs and arms straight. This is very important.
Breath in and out slowly throughout this exercise.
