Step by Step

  1. This exercise works your Triceps
  2. Like any exercise this should be pain free or shouldn’t increase existing pain levels, during, after and the next day.
  3. It is normal to feel some delayed onset muscle soreness between 48-72 hours but this should be manageable
  4. Load the EZ bar on the floor
  5. Have the middle flat part of the bar facing up
  6. Take hold of the first angled parts of the bar from the middle
  7. You palms should be facing down and inwards.
  8. You should pretty much dead lift the bar from the ground
  9. Now you are standing vertical with the bar by your hips
  10. You next should curl the bar up by bending your elbows and then press the bar up above your head
  11. This is the starting position
  12. Next bend you elbows to low the weight behind your head. Try to keep your elbow pointing up to the ceiling and keep your abs activated to keep your back straight throughout.
  13. Once you get a stretch in your Triceps then reverse the direction by straightening your elbow to the start position.
  14. For strengthening you should perform 6-10 reps to fatigue
  15. You should perform 3-5 sets with 3 minutes rests
  16. This session can be done 2-3 times per week
  17. For endurance you should perform 15-25 reps to fatigue
  18. You should perform 3-5 sets with no more than 30 second rests
  19. This session can be done 2-3 times per week

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
