    Excellent tip that everyone should be aware of, i see too many people doing this exercise without glueing their elbows to their sides, maybe because they dont like the fact that they have to lower the weight?

    Thank you for the reminder that form triumphs over weight. :) Great pics!

    Do you have any exercises ever for people that do not belong to a gym. Using only home equipment. Free weights, kettlebells, bands exercise ball, step bench etc.

    • Anna G says:

      This exercise works very well using resistance bands at home. Most bands come with a door attachment so just put it in the top of the door and your ready to go!

      Yup, both Curvalicious and FBL have home versions. You can also find some on the blog.

    I’m with Stephanie on this one. Do you have any good exercises with kettlebells. I recently bought some and there are a few exercises that come with them but not enough. Can you give us some tips on using kettlebells correctly? Have a great day at Stanly park. I was there a lot of years ago and it is beautiful. They had the aquarium at that time. I’ve heard that they closed it. Thanks for the tips.

    Looks Good Flavia!!!

  7. Flavia,
    Keeping the elbows in on a triceps press is a must. I would suggest keeping the shoulder blades back and down (or packed as Ryan and Adam show us) with the chest held or popped up is a part of this good form for a triceps press. As always, you rock Flavia.
    Would you go through some good plank techniques for modifications with a shoulder impingment injury? Also, some of your suggestions for some modifications for knee injury on squats and lunges?
    Thank you so much for all that you do for us.
    Respectfully Yours,
    Dr. Kimberly Gordacan
