Chris Freytag: The next exercise is the pendulum kick back. It's going to really focus on the triceps and also turn the legs and the bun. So I'll turn sideways, that you can visualize the whole and I am going to take my two hand weights and pull them up into two right angles, 90°. Standing on one leg engage those abdominals and lift your leg up with a flexed toe. We are going to swing our leg through as we swing our arms back, squeezing your buns and really squeezing through your triceps muscles at the back of your arm, you got to think about it. Come back to the beginning, little balanced challenge, so you got your abs tight and swing through, squeeze those triceps. Really think about keeping your torso lifted. Keep your ab tight and keep your spine long, all the way through working those triceps; one more here way to go. Always check the workout at a glance to find out the recommended number of repetitions and always repeat on the other side.
