How To Perform Exercise

The tricep dumbbell kickback exercise is one of the most beneficial and classic exercises for the arms and building bigger triceps.

Steps :

1.) Start off standing alongside a flat bench, bending your left knee and placing it upon the bench, then placing your left hand on the bench for support and keeping your back at a 45 degree angle.

2.) Grab and hold a dumbbell in your right hand and place your right foot on the floor.

3.) Bend your right arm and raise it up towards your shoulder, then with a controlled kick back motion, extend your arm fully behind you until you feel a stretch in your tricep muscle.

4.) Hold this position for a count, then return back to the starting position.

5.) Switch arms and repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) You want to make sure that you keep your elbows in close to your body throughout the entire exercise.
