Arm Toner #2: Triceps Kickbacks

Targets: Triceps, back
Repetitions: 15

Get rid of arm flab with this triceps-targeted move, and you’ll also work the muscles that line your spine in your back to help improve posture, all of which can lead to a slimmer appearance.

Start standing with your feet hip width apart, knees slightly bent, with a weight in each hand. Bend your elbows by your sides, pulling your arms to the outsides of your ribcage. Hinge forward from your hips, keeping your spine straight, and bring your body forward at a 45-degree angle [as shown in photo A]. Extend your arms behind you, turning your palms up to the ceiling as you extend your elbows s [as shown in photo B]. Bend arms back in by sides and then repeat.
