Triceps: Dumbbell Kickbacks

by Erika Nicole Kendall

A simple exercise that can be done with any weight that can be gripped and held for an extended period of time, dumbbell kickbacks are an awesome way to add a little definition to your arms!

Hello, quick question.
I have seen it demonstrated where you do the movement without moving your elbows or moving them as little as possible. Do you know if it is a form difference of the same exercise, or two totally different exercises that target different muscle groups/areas?

Or is it possible that she just looks like she is moving her elbows more than actually is?

Thank you.

You mean the movement she makes once she gets closer to locking her arm? I think you want to avoid doing that as much as possible. Make the movement as controlled as possible.

Thank you!!

I only watched it once (was at work the first time). Just watched it again and realize that I just thought she wasn’t moving nearly as much as I thought. As a testament to how absolutely amazing she looks, I think I saw all those muscles flexing and mistook it for extra movements.

I really appreciate the videos. The gym I just joined has yet to give me the free assessment and two personal training sessions I’m suppose to get, and just little things they go over in the videos (squeezing your elbows to the side in order to isolate biceps, slowing down the movement, etc.) make such a huge difference.
