Kickbacks are great for working the triceps, but this core version is a great way to add intensity and target the abs and back at the same time. This is a tough exercise, so start with a light weight to make sure you can keep good form. You can also modify by putting one knee down if you need more support.

  1. Start in a plank position with the feet wide, a light-medium weight in the right hand.
  2. Holding the plank position, pull the right elbow next to the ribcage. Make sure the hips are square to the floor, abs engaged.
  3. Squeeze the triceps to extend the arm, keeping the elbow in the same position.
  4. Lower the arm and repeat for 1-3 sets of 8-16 reps for both arms.
