BIKINI BOOTCAMP: TRICEPS TRIGGER

posted by Elshane on Apr 17 2014, under Health/Fitness

Triceps are like having food stuck in your teeth. You can't see them, but everyone else can! So, as Britney so eloquently says...

You Better Work Betch!

Here's a 5-minute triceps routine that you can do in front of your TV...

Grab a set of small weights, under 5lbs. If you don't have small weights, you can do this on your knuckles.

Sit on the ground like shown above-- shoulders back, tummy tucked into your belly button, and feet out in front of you. Your hands should be holding your weights on the floor. The benefit of using weights as a barrier between your hands and the floor is that the weights give you an extra few inches of depth to move up and down in the exercise.

With your arms stick straight, hands firming gripping your weights on the floor, lift your bum 12 inches off the ground. Keeping your bum in the air, slowly bend your elbow and then straighten again, 20 times.

Your bum will naturally move up and down with your body, but it should never touch the floor.

After 20 regular reps, raise your right leg in the air, and repeat for 20 more reps-- elbows slowly bending up and down, while foot stays steady and straight in the air.

Now repeat with your left leg in the air!

Finish your set with both feet on the ground for 20 more regular reps.

I'm admitting that this is one of the hardest exercises for me. Every body type is different, and for some reason, my body refuses the right to dip my triceps in an elegant manner.

But I still rock them out four times a week. And then cry.
