This next exercise is a tricep exercise. Your tricep is located on the backside of your arm. It’s a great one to do if you’re trying to get rid of metabolic syndrome because it’s simple, you can do it at home, with just a set of dumbbells.

The tricep kickback involves muscles in the back of your arm. The key thing here is to keep your elbow tight against your body, and not swing about your shoulder. All the motion should be about your elbow. Remember to keep your back close to parallel and horizontal with the ground.

So there you have a very simple tricep exercise to get you started. If you’re looking for a program that’s more customized to your needs, please contact your local kinesiologist, exercise specialist or physiotherapist.
