How to perform tricep kickbacks

Tricep kickbacks are a great exercise for targeting the triceps, but they require proper form to be effective and safe. Here are some tips for performing tricep kickbacks:

Choose the Right Weight: Start with a light weight to get the form right before increasing the load. You want a weight that challenges you but allows you to maintain proper form throughout the exercise.

Positioning: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing inward, and bend your upper body forward at the hips. Keep your back straight, and your head in line with your spine.

Engage Core Muscles: Tighten your core muscles to stabilize your torso throughout the movement. This helps to prevent your lower back from arching excessively.

Elbow Position: Keep your elbows close to your body and in line with your torso. Avoid letting your elbows flare out to the sides, as this can reduce the effectiveness of the exercise and strain your shoulders.

Extension: As you exhale, extend your arms fully behind you, keeping them parallel to the ground. Focus on fully contracting your triceps at the top of the movement.
