Triceps Strength Training
Triceps are the muscles located on the back of your upper arm. They are composed of three different muscle groups and are connected to both your elbows and shoulders. In strengthening triceps, you are helping to prevent pain and injury to your joints and putting less strain and stress on your bones.
Below is one exercise for strengthening triceps.
REMINDER: Consult your physician before beginning any exercise program. If pain develops, stop immediately and notify your physician.
Dumbbell Kick Back
To exercise your left arm, place your right knee and your right hand onto the bench. These two body parts should be supporting all of your body weight so there is no pressure on your lower back. Pull your left elbow up so that your arm is at a 90-degree angle; this is the starting position. Extend your arm to a 180-degree angle (straight line) behind you, hold for a second, and slowly lower the weight back to the starting position. Your elbow should not move while doing this. Repeat with the right arm.
