Tricep kickback.

Description: An exercise for the tricep.

Motions trained: None. This combines very well with other exercises though.

Main muscles used: Triceps
   Other muscles:

How to do it:

Get on all fours. Using a single bell, pull it towards your chest and hold it there. With your upper arm glued to your side, extend your lower arm to your waist, then return to the starting position.

How to work up to it: Low weight dumbbells.

Ramping it up: This does not lend itself to plyometric movements.

Do's and don'ts: Don't jus throw the bell around. Move it smoothly.

Comments: Again, this is useful since it can be thrown into a variety of other movements as part of compound exercises.
