    Michelle Beaumont: Hi I'm Michelle. I'm going to demonstrate variations of triceps kickbacks. You want to begin with your feet and your core stance. We are going to turn sideways with this one, so you can really see the angle. My feet are hip distance, my knees are bent, abs are tight, shoulders back and down, but I'm bowing forward, my shoulders are still in line with my hips, as I kick back the weight, this is not a bicep exercise, so you don't want to come all the way up here you want to stay short to the back. The most common mistake is swinging and also developing the bicep muscle while you are trying to work your triceps.

    So stay to the rear, turn your head so your neck is in the neutral spine position. That means that the crown of your heads in line with your spine and kick it back. You can also do this at an angle, bringing the weights to the front and shooting them out to the sides a bit. This is what it looks like from the front. Okay, so this is option two, this is option one, again option two. The third option is to place the weights all way down below your knees and shoot the weights straight up behind you, and your triceps are now facing the ceiling, and that's it.
