Ischemic Prone Triceps Kick Back Series

Ischemic Prone Triceps Kick Back Series

Eric Serrano MD invented Ischemic Prone Triceps Kick Back Series techniques to increase lean muscle, improve strength, optimize athletic function and to prevent injuries. Techniques were developed based on published research and extensive patient evaluations. Dr. Serrano will use certain ischemic exercise to rehabilitate injuries for patients under his supervision.

Ischemic Prone Triceps Kick Back Series

Ischemic prone triceps kick backs are extremely difficult due to the common areas of weakness they target. Extending the time under tension, strategic pauses, fresh stimuli and other elements make ischemic training highly effective for increasing lean muscle tissue.

See our Unbalanced Load Arm Training Routine and Videos for more Ischemic Strength Training Exercises.

Train All Three Triceps Heads

Stimulate all three heads of the triceps with the demonstrated kick back circuit. Emphasize keeping the non working arm in a high position with an appropriate contraction while the other arm performs reps as assigned.

The trainer or training partner should look for signs of fatigue and inform the trainee so that execution can be corrected during the set. Do not let the arms drop downward towards the floor as the set becomes more challenging. Keep the elbows high which focuses tension on the triceps instead of the shoulders.

Dr. Serrano may be use different dumbbell weights for each arm to address specific weaknesses.

One arm stays in a static position to promote ischemic conditions. Research and practical experience proves that ischemic training has many benefits including increasing blood flow over the course of a six week personalized training plan. Higher blood flow to the muscles can help to carry in more nutrients and drive waste materials out of the muscles more efficiently.

Ischemic training movements are frequently part of injury rehabilitation plans that Dr. Serrano designs for patients including professional athletes you must recover as soon as possible. Beyond the recovery aspect Dr. Serrano wants his patients to reduce the risk of future injury by correcting weaknesses that likely caused the injury in the first place.
