August Arms Challenge: Tricep Kickbacks

Today we're moving on to the final move in the August Arms Challenge - tricep kickbacks! These are great for toning your triceps since they work all three heads of the muscle.  They'll help you get sculpted arms and get rid of that upper arms wobble. All you need is a pair of dumbbells - if you're a beginner, use 2 or 3 pound weights. If you're more advanced, feel free to use 5 or even 8 pound dumbbells. 


To do a tricep kickback, stand with your legs hip-width apart and bend down into a slight squat. Your back should be close to parallel to the ground. Begin holding your weights at your chest, palms facing in. Exhale and slowly press your weights backwards slightly past your hips, keeping your upper arms steady by the sides of your body. Pause, inhale, and bring the weights back to the starting position.

August Arms Challenge: Reverse Flies

Today we're moving on to the next move of the August Arms Challenge - reverse flies! These work your rhomboids, the muscles in your shoulders and upper back.  All you need is a pair of dumbbells - if you're a beginner, use 2 or 3 pound weights. If you're more advanced, feel free to use 5 or even 8 pound dumbbells. 


To do a reverse fly, stand with your legs slightly bent hip-width apart. Bend over to where your back is parallel with the ground. Hold a weight in each hand with your arms extended to the ground and your palms facing each other. Exhale and slowly straighten your arms to the side to lift the weights shoulder-level. Don't swing the weights - use your upper back and shoulder muscles to lift them. Briefly pause, then inhale and slowly lower your weights to the starting position.
