Want super-toned arms? Nikki Fogden-Moore demonstrates the triceps extension.
FOCUS: Abs, and triceps
Stand with one foot in front of the other for a good, stable position. Shoulders are back and abs engaged. It helps to activate the thighs, so imagine ‘pulling’ your kneecaps upwards, which gives you strong legs at the same time.
Grasp the kettlebell or weight with both hands, bring it overhead, keep elbows tight and lower the weight behind your head, then bring back to the top.
Repeat this 15 times and then return to the start position.
Keep a tension on the flex and extension of this exercise – i.e. don’t let the kettlebell or weight fall back too quickly. Keeping your elbows in will ensure you can isolate the triceps.
