    Compound kickbacks?

    hey y'all.. I saw Ronnie doing something similar to this in his training vid or whatever awhile back. I thought I'd try them out, and have been doing them since.



    (and yeah, that's me, Casper the Friendly Ghost w/ 35 lb dumbells )

    I think they're fun to do, but I don't know what they're called and haven't seen them on the ExRx site (where I get all my official workout terms )..

    I call them "compound kickbacks" since they work a little of the shoulders, forearms, and back, but is there a name for them?

    Yeah, I like them alot. Ronnie wasn't nearly doing as full of a motion as I am. I have to say though, this isn't the best demostration.. my form wasn't good at all

    They look kinda like DB cleans or cuban presses.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Hmm, I don't remember him doing that motion, exactly. I think he was just doing DB laterals with bad form.

    I think it's a good exercise, though. I use it on my back days, as I believe it works mostly my back. But I like to have a compound exercise for just about every muscle, for overall strength to compliment all my isolationist exercises.

    Yeah, yesterday I saw someone do exactly the same motion, except he's a newb and the trainers at my gym makes the newb do lateral raises, not "compound kickbacks".

    It can be bad for the rotator cuffs, especially with 35 lbs dumbell. But if they're 100% healthy and the movement is painfree, then it could be benificial, altough potentially dangerous if done too fast.

    I make sure I have full control of the weights. The last frame in the gif is where I stop... but it's like stopping at a red light... you slow down way before actually stop.

    And yeah, don't sling the dumbells like a crazy man.

    I do front dumbell raises and lateral dumbells raises for my shoulders, along with close grip dips for my deltoids. I bet it doesn't look like I can do dips w/ 50 lbs extra does it?

    Well I think other exercises would be of more benefit then that one.

    I do a variation of those. I do it sitting on the end of a bench, and i bring my arms down behind my legs, with my lower back leaning forward. I then raise them up, along with sitting up, in a similar fasion to what you are doing. I bring the dumbells up higher though.

    Just a general compound movement. I imagine it uses the back, shoulders, and forearms are the primary muscles, and the biceps as a stabilizer. Honestly, which I first started it, I didn't know what it did. I just thought I'd do it because Ronnie was, and it wasn't that hard anyway.

    That gif was a really bad demonstration, I have to say. I go a little above my shoulder, and the movement is much, much more symmetrical. If I can't be symmetrical, I lower the weight. But I can do 35 lbs.. I don't know why I didn't make a better gif

    I might try what you were talking about... I'd probably need better control and form, which is always good.

    Isn't that a 10 lbs and a 5 lbs disc on each side?

    For each dumbell, it's a 10 lb and 7 1/2 lb disc (for each corressponding side). I never could find the 7 1/2 after I bought this dumbell set. Wish they sold them individually..
