The Triceps Kickback is an isolation resistance exercise designed to strengthen and develop the triceps mucsles. It can be performed in a variety of ways. Our example is shown using the low pulley of a GDCC210 Functional Trainer.
START by attaching an ankle strap or pulley handle to the low pulley cable. Stand facing the machine, a few feet away from it and slightly off-center so that your non-dominant shoulder is in line with the cable. Bend forward at the hips and bend your knees so that your torso is parrallel with the floor. Rest your free forearm on its coresponding knee or if needed hold ont the machine for balance. Pull back your working arm so your upper arm is parrallel to the floor and against your torso. Your elbow should point backward; your forearm should point down.
Straighten your working arm, keeping the rest of your body - especially your working upper arm - in the original position. Pause, then return to the starting position. Finish the set with that arm then switch hands and repeat wtith the other arm.
