Balancing Triceps Kickback Exercise

Multitasking Move: Balancing Triceps Kickback

Many women complain about their bums and the backs of their arms being a little jiggly, so here's an exercise that will tone both of those areas. Since you're working hard to stay balanced, you'll also be targeting your core.

To learn how to do this challenging move, grab a mat and a dumbbell, and read on.

  • Come onto your hands and knees. Place a dumbbell in your left hand. Bend your elbow, and pull it up so it's in line with your shoulder.
  • Straighten your left leg behind you, so your heel is in line with your bum. Pull your navel toward your spine to engage your abs, which will help you stay balanced.
  • Holding your left leg in the air, exhale as you do a triceps kickback by extending your left hand behind you. Inhale to bend your elbow. This counts as one rep.
  • Complete 10 to 12 reps on each side.
