STRAIGHT-ARM PLATE PUSH BACK

Exercise Instructions:

  1. Take a weight plate in each hand and let your arms hang down by your sides with your palms facing in towards your legs.
  2. Fully engage your abs, this will prevent you from swinging.
  3. Push your thumbs down into the plate and flex your triceps HARRRRRRD, as you move your arms back behind the line of your body.
  4. This one does require a good mind/muscle connection with your triceps, but is well worth it, so practice this move until you get it right. For an extra squeeze, hold the finish position for a second.

Muscles Worked:

Triceps, forearms.
