Starting Position

  • grasp a dumbbell with one hand
  • the palm points backwards or to the body
  • stand upright, feet shoulder width apart and knees bent a little
  • bend forward until the upper body is almost parallel to the ground
  • the free hand is on the knee to support your body
  • back is straight
  • straight arm, the weight is hanging down

Correct Execution

  • slowly raise the arm without bending it until it is parallel to the ground
  • hold this position for a moment
  • the upper body does not move
  • afterwards, bring down the arm slowly and go over to the next rep
  • do several reps on one side
  • switch sides then and do the same number of reps

tips for the workout

  • if you want to focus on the triceps, then first do the Triceps Kickback and lift the arm afterwards
  • it becomes harder, if you train both arms simultaneously, your back has to stabilize your body more
