Arm exercise with legs in tabletop.
.
Keep shoulders down
Keep ribs down.
Back in neutral.
Core engaged.
Legs in tabletop.
Arms strong and LATS engaged. 
This flat rectangular muscle of the back helps the arms rotate as well as move away from and toward the body.
It also is the muscle that can help tone that annoying fatty area that hangs over the bra sides. .

Pilates reformer fitness Thursday

Pilates reformer fitness Thursday.

This particular exercise is so much harder than it looks.
.
It depends on a strong glute med, good turn out from the hip and core stability, .
I found it hard to do as I had a left hip resurface op a few years ago ( the same op as @andymurray has just had) and also tore the glute med subsequently.
.
So the mechanics of how my left hip works, together with the hip flexors and glutes are not as they were before. Also at the age of 64 the body is slightly more worn now! .
But with hard work its possible to aspire to be the best you can be.

It's important to always stretch before any exercise.
.
.
But check with your personal trainer that you're stretching correctly as this pose is slightly exaggerated for the purposes of this pic. The more you can bring your hip forward and align the knees the better the stretch.
