Overhead Extension Exercise

This is a great exercise for toning the triceps. They are the part of the arms that are refered to as “bat wings”, you can see them when you wave hello and your arm looks wobbly. We use our legs all the time but not our arms and especially that particular muscle. So for more toned arms that we can feel comfortable with  when wearing short sleeved tops this is a good exercise to do.

Stand up straight with your knees soft and abs held in tight to protect your lower back. Holding a dumbbell in your hands bend your elbows in a 90 – degree angle, then straighten your arms up squeezing your triceps as you return to start position. Do this movement slowly. Do 2-3 sets of 12-16 reps. Use the weight that is comfortable for you. I use 3kg but feel free to use 5kg.
