Kenny Carrington: Hi! I am Kenny Carrington at Velocity Sports Performance. I am the Director here in Alexandria. I am here training with the Pro Donna The Animal Wilkinson, okay, still working on upper body strength. For this segment what we will to do what we call an auxiliary exercise. We are going to breakdown, and doing tricep exercise, tricep is the back of the arm. With this, we are going to do double, we call dumbbell skull crushers. So, she is going to lay down on the bench, she has her two dumbbells. As she is going hold her weight up and we are going to have her arms in what we call neutral grips, so palms are facing each other. She is going to keep the elbows up in the air, you are going to come down to the shoulders, touch the shoulders and then back up in the air. Okay, keep in that straight up and down position, working the triceps. We'll also have our four points a we talked earlier about when we did bench first the feet, the glutes, the back, and the head all touching their parts to the ground or the bench. For this we will do three sets maybe four sets from anywhere from ten reps up until 15-20 reps. For this first one we are going to do 15 reps, good, make sure those elbows stay up. Like I said we normally do that about three sets from 10-15 reps. From the first set we are going to try to do 20 reps for the second -- alright, trying to get 20. So, we try to add some goals in there, trying to add goals. That concludes our triceps section for the upper body strength.
