May’s Fitness Tip with Kerry Engle, Shaker Pointe’s Fitness Director

One Arm Triceps Kickback

      

Follow These Steps:

Step 1:  Start with a dumbbell in your hand and your palms facing your torso.  Keep your back straight with a slight bend in the knees and bend forward at the waist.  Your torso should be almost parallel to the floor.  Make sure to keep your head up.

Step 2:  Your upper arms should be close to your torso and parallel to the floor.  Your forearms should be pointed towards the floor as you hold the weights.  There should be a 90-degree angle formed between your forearm and upper arm.  This is your starting position.

Step 3:  Now, while keeping your upper arms stationary, exhale and use your triceps to lift the weights until the arm is fully extended.  Focus on moving the forearm.

Step 4:  After a brief pause at the top contraction, inhale and slowly lower the dumbbells back down to the starting position.

Step 5:  Repeat the movement for the prescribed amount of repetitions.
