Toned Arms: Tricep Kickbacks

Tricep Kickbacks

Looking to get rid of that dreaded “bat wing?” Tricep kickbacks will do the trick! Grab a weight that’s at least five pounds and stand with your knees slightly bent. Bend at the waist to a 45-degree angle (make sure your back is straight) and place you right leg in front of your left. Rest your right hand on your high and lift the weight in your left hand to a 90-degree angle. Move the weight back until your left arm straight and then slowly move it back. Continue this movement for 10 to 12 reps and then repeat with your right arm.
