Tricep Kickback - Resistance Tube
Other types of Tricep Kickback: Free Weight Stability Ball
Place the tube around a secure fixture or close the assist strap in the doorway. Step back slightly to create tension, and place one foot about 2 feet behind the other with your knees bent.
Bend forward with a neutral spine and pull your elbows towards your waist. Keep them stationary as you extend your lower arms until your elbows are straight. Return your elbows to a 90 degree bend.
TIP: Keep your shoulders pulled back. Engage your abdominals and keep your back flat, not allowing it to round forward. Keep your chest open and broad as your straighten your arm, squeezing your triceps completely at the straight position.
Variations for Tricep Kickback
This is one of the best posture promoters to help get rid of slouched posture.
This requires a place to secure the tube if you do it with two arms at a time, but it can also be done one tricep at a time by holding one end above your head and the other end down by your hip.
If you do not have a place to secure the tube, this is a good option. It strengthens the stability muscles in your arms and shoulders.
If you have an assist strap or a high fixture where you can secure the tube, this is a great exercise for the whole triceps. It gives your back more of a rest than other triceps exercises since you are not bending forward.
