Exercise of the Week: Tricep Kickback

Tricep strength is essential when developing overall upper body strength and supporting shoulder and elbow strength.

  • Hold a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing in toward each other, keeping your knees bent slightly. You can stagger your legs slightly for more balance.
  • Engage your core and maintain a straight back. Hinge forward at the waist, bringing your torso almost parallel to the floor.
  • Keep your upper arms in close to your body and your head in line with your spine, tucking your chin in slightly.
  • Engage your triceps by straightening your elbows.


  • Hold your upper arms still, only moving your forearms during this movement.
  • Pause here, then return the weights to the starting position.
  • Do 2 to 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps.

Please speak to your provider before starting any new exercise regimen.
