11. Kickback with a Twist
Do you envy the firm, toned triceps of your peers? Here’s how to give yours a better and sleeker shape.
Hold your arms on your sides and grab a dumbbell of up to eight pounds in each hand. Stand with your feet wider than the width of your shoulder and maintain a straight back. Bend forward at the waist to allow your upper body to become parallel to the ground. Bring up your elbows so your upper arms are at the same level as your back. In this position, your elbows should be at 45 degrees while your palms should face each other. Keep your upper arms still and spread your both hands behind you. Next, rotate your wrists till your palms face up. Allow your palms to face each other again and bend your elbows to return to the initial position by bringing the dumbbells towards your body. Do three sets of this exercise, with 15 repetitions in each step.
