Triceps Kick Backs

Posted by terrepruitt on June 11, 2011

This is a pretty common triceps exercise.  I would bet that you have seen it even if you have not done it.  It is often done with a dumbbell but for my Ten Minute Workout I opted for a resistance band on the BOSU.  Since this workout is a timed ten minutes, it is best to set it up before you begin the ten minutes.  As you can see in my picture in my Terre’s Ten Ten in Ten I have it all set up before hand.  The resistance band is on the flat side on the BOSU.  For this triceps kick back you stand on the band on the flat side of the BOSU.  Your stance is hip width apart or whatever is comfortable to allow you to balance on the BOSU.  Hold one end of the band in each hand.  Crouch down a little: you are bent over a little bit – knees bent and back straight.  Upper arms and elbows pull back behind your ribs.  Cricket style.  🙂  (Your arms would be the cricket legs.)  Then pull the band straightening your arms.  Only the elbow joint moves.  Everything else is stable and still.

You’ve done those before, huh?  They are pretty common.  We are just doing it a little different because of the BOSU and the band.  So how was that?  What questions come up when you do this exercise?

Weekend Workout

Posted by terrepruitt on June 11, 2011

So, it is technically Saturday.  It is 1:25 am and my company just left.  I am posting this Ten Minute Workout place holder for those of you in different time zones and early morning exercisers.  Not that early morning exercisers would be exercising THIS early, but I am sure they will be doing it before me.

Today I don’t have a Nia class to teach so I am sure I will be getting to my Ten Ten in Ten much earlier than yesterday.  So I will be checking back.  And I will also be posting about Tricpes Kick Backs on the BOSU.  Fun stuffs.  Stay tuned.
