The tricep kickback exercise can be an excellent, easy to perform, tricep exercise. Contrary to most, I like to prescribe these to my clients using a cable system as I find it does a better job with placing tension throughout the range of motion compared to a DB.
💡Now, there are some cues for this exercise with the focus on stimulating the tricep:
✅ Stabilize your core and scapula
✅ Think to drive the pit of your elbow forward
✅ At the end of the concentric, think to pull your elbow to your shoulder (the last inch you get is KILLER!)
✅ Joint movement should come from the elbow, not the shoulder
✅ Allow the muscle dictate your ROM, not the movement itself
✅Spend time where there is tension
✅Own every inch of the rep!
❌ AVOID the mistake of allowing yourself to "pull" the weight and using purely momentum to move more weight or achieve a greater ROM.
🏋🏼♀️ programming advise:
