Triceps Kick

One of the great things about this exercise is that you can use any weight that works for you—and increase the weight as you get stronger!

How to:

  • Using a bench-like surface, position your left knee on the bench and your right leg straight down.
  • Bend your upper body so that your torso is parallel with the bench. This means your back will be flat like a table—not rounded like a kitty (although you will be one sexy one when this is through)!
    • Place your left hand on the bench for support and balance.
  • Start with the weight in your right arm.
    • At first, your arm will be hanging down straight.
  • To begin, lift your right arm up until your elbow forms a 90 degree angle.
    • Keep your abs tight and contracted!
  • Now, here’s the kickback—extend your lower arm back (hand towards the sky)!
    • If this sounds confusing, check out the picture for clarity!
  • After the kickback, return your arm to a 90 degree angle—and that’s one rep!
  • Perform 3 sets of 8-12 reps with each arm!
    • In no time, you’ll be back-of-the-arm jiggle-free! Oh yaas!
