This exercise strengthens the back of the arm, the triceps. It’s called tricep extensions. So you need to stand in a staggered stance, resting on your bent knee. Now your weighted arm needs to be locked into your side at the elbow, with a dumbbell hanging below. And now nice and simple: just straighten your arm. Always remember, keep that tummy tight and that back nice and flat.
Let’s do one more.
1. Stand in a staggered position with one hand resting on your front bent knee. Lean slightly forward, back straight, locking your free weighted elbow into your side.
2. Exhale as you extend your arm backwards. Straighten and hold. Return to the start position and repeat.
Don't forget to follow these steps during your workout:
Step 1: Start off with a warm-up exercise routine.
Step 2: It’s time to do the 2 minute stretch routine.
Step 3: Jump in - it's time to do the exercise programme. Choose one of the four programmes.
Step 4: Now begin the cool-down routine.
Step 5: Time to finish with the stretch routine.
Step 6: Congratulations you just found your 30 minutes of activity today.
