Kettlebell Tricep Pushup:
- Starting Position: Begin in a plank position with your hands placed on the handles of two kettlebells and wrists directly under your shoulders. Keep your body in a straight line from head to heels, engaging your core.
- Descent: Inhale as you lower your chest towards the ground, keeping your elbows close to your body to target the triceps. Ensure a controlled descent, avoiding excessive arching or sagging of the back.
- Pushup Ascent: Exhale as you push through your palms, extending your arms back to the starting plank position. Fully straighten your arms at the top of the movement.
- Perform the tricep pushup on an elevated surface, such as a bench or step, to reduce the intensity.
- Elevate your feet on a stable surface to increase the challenge on your triceps and core.
- Maintain a neutral spine throughout the movement.
- Keep your elbows pointing backward rather than flaring out to the sides.
- Engage your core to prevent your hips from sagging or lifting.
- Choose a kettlebell weight that allows for proper form and progression.
- Perform the exercise in a controlled manner to maximize effectiveness.
The Kettlebell Tricep Pushup is an effective upper-body exercise that targets the triceps, chest, and shoulders. The regression and progression options allow you to tailor the exercise to your fitness level. Include this variation in your strength training routine to enhance tricep strength and overall upper body stability.
