I’ll be right back with a great training tip.

Welcome back. Now it’s time for your trainers tip. This one is for the tricep muscles the back of the arms.

Let’s do it right. First of all think about good posture your hips are straight forward your shoulders are straight forward what you’re going to do is lean slightly forward down like this but your back still stays straight. Your elbow comes up. And with this hand you can place it here for support of your spine. Get the elbow up. Then the arm straightens out and releases down. This is where the best ways to firm the back of those arms the triceps. No more underarm SAG no Miranda I’m Flavell firmed up but notice how high my elbow is and it’s very stationary see out stationary. If you’re doing this and you’re swinging you’re not quite getting the back of the arms to firm it up. So it’s not as effective. It’s effective when it comes up the arm is almost parallel to the floor then the arm straightens and releases. This is a great way to firm the back of those arms. That’s it. And always keep that tummy tight. All these exercise are great ways to affirm those muscles. That’s what it’s all about looking our very best.

See you right here on the next daily workout. Have a great day. Make it the best.
