bench kickbacks

Muscle Groups

Bench kickbacks is an isolation exercise that targets the triceps muscles. To perform this exercise, the athlete needs a bench or any other elevated stable platform. The athlete first places one arm on the bench with an elbow in a bent position and the other arm holding the weight. The athlete then extends the elbow until the entire arm is straight while keeping the upper arm stationary, hence moving only the forearm. Bench kickbacks are an effective way to target the triceps muscles, which are the muscles on the back of the upper arm. This exercise strengthens these muscles and can help with everyday activities such as pushing open a door or lifting objects. It is also used in other upper body exercises, such as bench press, where strong triceps are crucial to complete the exercise. In addition to strengthening the triceps, bench kickbacks also improve flexibility and range of motion in the elbow joint.
