Weight and Resistance Training - kettlebell exercise for back of arm, flabby arm should i say

03-16-2009, 05:56 PM
I have been using a kettlebell for several weeks and just moved up to a larger size. I am very happy with what it is doing for my biceps and shoulders as well as the rest of my body. However as I lose more fat I have that lovely arm flab in the tricep area. Any ideas on exercises for that?

I have the kettlenetics DVD and it does have exercises for that specifically. I have not been as faithful as I should with it..... but I believe I am getting some results. I still have a little flab, but that may not go away.

Anyway, put the kettlebell next to your ear with your elbow flexed point the ball up on the kettlebell. Use your opposite arm to support (as to protect your head) and just push the kettlebell up so your arm is straight. At first you will ask yourself how it could possibly help..... then about 6 into it you will start feeling the burn. I shoot for reps of 25.

The kettlebell snatch is probably one of the best all over body exercises available. Also the turkish getup is another excellent all over body exercise.

ladyrider- I am not sure that I know what you are saying, are you talking about an overhead press? If so I do those. I use a 20lb kettlebell so I should be seeing some results from that but I never have any soreness. I have that old mind set, no pain no gain.

eviemc - you don't always get soreness especially with kettlebells. If I get soreness, I generally get it in my butt from all the swings.

i do get some soreness in my legs from the swings and squats as well but I usually do a circuit with my bike and treadmill with the kettlebell, so i thought it could be from that as well.

I will push on and keep doing what I am doing and search for some other exercises as well. thanks

On and the triple crush is also a good exercise for arms and legs.

You could also do it without the squat.
