Arms and Core!

Fit Body:

Tricep Kickbacks

Strengthen your arms with this tricep exercise. This exercise also strengthens your upper back posture muscles, as well as your core because of working one side of your body at a time. Here’s how:

Begin kneeling with your right knee on a chair. Place your left foot flat on the floor. Hold a weight in your left hand. Place your right hand on the chair so your back is flat. Lift your left arm so it is parallel to your torso and the floor. Bend and extend your elbow. Do 10 reps. Repeat holding the weight in your right hand.

*Consult your physician before performing exercise.

Your mother was right!

Get Fit Quick Tip:

Your mother was right with her constant nagging, “sit up straight!”

Functioning in proper posture during your day means all systems of your body are able to work properly. Neutral posture means your ears should be lined up over your shoulders, and your shoulders lined up over your hips. Your chin should be parallel to the floor and your shoulder blades should be pulled down and back.

Sit up straight for increased energy and decreased muscle tension and soreness!
