Coach Kristie demonstrates the Exercise of the Week, Tricep Kickbacks.
This exercise specifically targets the three muscles in the back of your arm that make up the triceps. Triceps work with the other muscles in your arm to assist in raising and moving heavy objects. One big error made in the gym is a lot of people work the biceps and neglect the triceps.
Stand in athletic ready position, feet shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent. Hinge forward at the waist, holding arms at a 90 degree angle. Activate core and extend arms behind you, parallel to the floor. Start with 3 sets of 10, work to 3 sets of 18 before increasing weight.
