Cable y raise

How to do cable y raise:

  1. Stand facing a cable machine with your feet shoulder-width apart ,affix a handle to a cable machine’s bottom pulley.
  2. Standing far enough away from the machine to make the cable taut, grab the handle with an overhand grip.
  3. Your arms should be completely stretched in front of you while you hold the handle with your palms downward. Leaning slightly forward from the hips, your body should be arranged in a Y pattern.
  4. Exhale as you lift the handle in a Y-shape upward and outward to the sides while maintaining straight arms. Keep your arms straight and parallel to the floor.
  5. Pause briefly and press your shoulder blades together at the peak of the exercise. Your shoulders and upper back will probably tense up.
  6. Inhale, then slide the handle back to the beginning position slowly and deliberately.
  7. Keep appropriate form and controlled action throughout the specified number of repetitions.

The benefits of cable y raise:

  • Targets the frequently underdeveloped rear deltoids and aids in creating a balanced shoulder muscular structure.
  • Enhances posture and total upper body strength by working the upper back muscles, especially the trapezius and rhomboids.
  • Enhances shoulder mobility and lowers the risk of injuries by encouraging improved control and stability of the shoulder blades.
  • Regular performance can result in better upper body aesthetics and more defined muscles.
  • Trengthens the muscles that are employed in many daily tasks, which is good for general functional fitness.


Always pick a weight that enables you to regulate the workout well and without strain. The upper traps and rear deltoids are the main areas that this workout targets. If you’re unfamiliar with it, think about getting advice from a fitness expert to make sure you’re performing it effectively and safely.
