Triceps Kickback

Triceps Kickback

What muscles do Triceps Kickback work?

The triceps kickback exercise primarily works the triceps brachii, a muscle located in the back of the upper arm that is responsible for extending the elbow. It also engages the posterior deltoid to a lesser extent. The kickback is an effective exercise for strengthening the triceps muscles..

How do you do a Triceps Kickback?

To perform a single arm triceps kickback exercise:

  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a single AguaForce Weight in one hand.
  • Bend forward from the hips, keeping your back flat and your neck in a neutral position.
  • Hold the AguaForce Weight with your palm facing your thigh, arm extended straight down and parallel to the floor.
  • Keeping your upper arm stationary, extend your elbow and kick the AguaForce Weight backwards until your arm is straight behind you.
  • Pause briefly, then slowly lower the weight back to the starting position.
  • Repeat the motion with the other arm.
  • Continue alternating arms for the desired number of reps.

It's important to use a weight that is appropriate for your strength level and to keep your movements smooth and controlled. Make sure to keep your back flat and your neck in a neutral position, avoiding any excessive arching or rounding of the back. Also, avoid swinging the weight and use your triceps to lift the weight, not your shoulder.
