How to Do Side Lunge With Dumbbell Tricep Extension
Each exercise should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.
If any pain is experienced, immediately stop this exercise.
Beginning Lunge Dumbbell Tricep Extension
Maintain good posture throughout the exercise with shoulder blades back and down, good stability through the belly, and neutral spine angles.
Activate the core by drawing the belly button and towards the spine and perform pelvic floor contractions by tightening those muscles commonly used to stop the flow of urine.
Start with the arms holding the dumbbell overhead, elbows bent to 90 degrees.
Lunge Dumbbell Tricep Extension Movement
1. While maintaining total body alignment, step sideways descending slowly by bending the lunge at the hips, knees, and ankles, and keeping the other leg straight in extension.
2. Keep most of your weight in the lunge leg and AVOID letting your back arch as you descend into the lunge.
3. In the deepest part of the lunge, perform an overhead triceps extension and lower the weight slowly.
4. Use your hip and thigh muscles to push yourself up and back to the starting position.
