Starting Position

  • lay on the ground sideways
  • do not rest the head on the ground
  • angle the legs a bit and slightly stagger the feet for more stability
  • place the upper hand in front of the chest on the ground
  • the elbow is bent to about 90 degrees then
  • wrap the other arm around your upper body and bring the lower hand on the hip

Correct Execution

  • stretch out the arm according to your fitness level
  • your obliques can support the exercise, this takes weight from the triceps
  • the upper body is raising then
  • do not stretch the arm fully to keep strain from the elbow joint
  • invert the motion and come back to the starting position without taking all the tension from the triceps
  • do several reps on one side
  • afterwards, switch sides and do the same number of reps
