One-On-One with Jason Greene Dumbbell Tricep Kickback   I   wrote   about   a   tricep   exercise   a   couple   of   months   ago   and   since   then   I   have   been   inundated   with   requests for   more.      This   exercise,   like   the   tricep   bench   dip   I   discussed   earlier,   takes   care   of   the   gink   on   the   back   of the   female   arm.      You   know   the   stuff   on   the   back   of   the   upper   arm   that   tends   to   flap   in   the   wind.      The   tricep kickback   is   also   a   fantastic   exercise   for   guys   trying   to   gain   girth   in   their   upper   arms.      It   can   be   performed with dumbbells, cables or even exercise bands.   Dumbbell Tricep Kickbacks Grasp   a   dumbbell   with   one   hand.   Place   your   opposite   knee   on   a   bench   (your   other   foot   should   remain   flat   on the   floor).      Keeping   your   back   tight   and   chest   out,   bend   forward   at   your   waist   and place   your   free   hand   on   the   bench,   supporting   your   upper   body   (this   arm   should   be slightly bent). Your torso should be parallel to the floor. (photo-A)  Keep   your   head   and   neck   in   line   with   your   torso   so   that   you   are   looking   down   toward the   floor.   Hang   your   arm   (holding   the   dumbbell)   straight   down   toward   the   floor.   Your palm should be facing in toward your body in a neutral position. Pull   the   dumbbell   up   toward   your   body,   bending   your   arm,   until   your   upper   arm (between   your   shoulder   and   your   elbow)   is   parallel   to   the   floor.   Keep            your   upper   arm stationary   and   parallel   to   the   floor   throughout   this   exercise.   At   this   point,   your   arm should be bent 90 degrees. Straighten   your   arm,   lifting   the   dumbbell   back   and   up   toward   the   ceiling.   Breathe   out during   this   phase   of   the   exercise.   Continue   to   straighten   your   arm   until   it   is   straight.     (photo-B) Now,   in   a   controlled   fashion,   bend   your   arm,   lowering   the   dumbbell   toward   the   floor, until   your   arm   returns   to   the   starting   position.   Breathe   in   during   this   phase   of   the exercise. Ø      Your upper arm should remain stationary at all times.  The only movement should occur from your elbow down! Ø      Do not swing the weight! Use the contraction of the tricep to create the movement.  Ø      Look down at the bench to prevent straining your neck. Ø      To change the feel of the exercise, rotate your palm up as you reach the top of the movement.   Disclaimer:   One   on   One   with   Jason   aims   to   provide   general   fitness   and   exercise   information.   Advice   offered   may   not   be   applicable   to   all   individuals   and   does   not   constitute   medical,   health   or   scientific   fitness   advice.     People   have   different   needs,   abilities   and   levels   of   health.   It   is   recommended   that   all   readers   consult   a   medical   professional   before   beginning   any   form   of   exercise,   participate   in   any   physical   fitness   or   sports   training program or undertake any form of health plan, nutrition program or weight loss diet, especially if you have been inactive most of your life, suffer from obesity or have any health problems.
