The Tricep Dumbbell Kickback

This exercise puts force on the triceps at the top of the move compared to the overhead triceps extension.

  1. Set the bench at around knee-height.
  2. Rest your left hand on the bench beneath your left shoulder and place your left knee on the bench in line with your top abs.
  3. Your upper body should be horizontal, with your right upper arm in line with your torso.
  4. Let your right forearm and the dumb-bell hang straight down.
  5. Press the weight straight back, moving only at your elbow.
  6. Keep the rest of your body in the same position throughout.
  7. Once set is complete swap arms.
