Hi! Im Manny Castro, Exercise Physiologist. In this exercise, were targeting the triceps

muscle. Were going to do this with the dumbbell and it is called a dumbbell triceps

extension. What were going to do is very simply put our arm behind our back, and I

think throughout the movement what you really should concentrate on is your elbow pointing

up to the roof as much as possible. So what you are going to do is, this is your start

position, this is your finish position. Nice and slow, again, with that technique of a

3 count on the way down and a three count on the way up, pause at the top. Once again, this is probably a little bit

difficult because of the position. So you want to start with light dumbbells, work your

way up as your strength increases. About 12-15 repetitions would suffice; 3-4 sets. Then

as you get stronger you want to progress and increase your weight by about 5 lbs. every

6-8 weeks or so. Youre going to lower the repetitions and continue to do the 3-4 sets.
