This week’s exercise is another that works your triceps: the bent-over tricep kickback. You can use a bench or chair for this exercise for added stability.
- Hold a dumbbell in your hand and bend over, until your trunk is at 45° or parallel to the floor.
- Keeping your back flat, bring the bent elbow to the torso level and extend the arm behind, squeezing the triceps.
- This is one rep- complete three sets of 8-10 reps. If you are unable to complete reps or sets of this amount, start with 5-8 reps, and start with even one set, slowly working your way to the full amount.
- Make sure to keep your head in line with your back, and keep your back straight through the entire movement to avoid injury.
