In order to increase the range of motion, bring the dumbbells at a level, lower than your forehead. Without moving your elbows from this position, push them in the upward direction. It means, you need to slowly lower the dumbbells and push them fast in upward direction. This will enable you to feel good contraction in your triceps. As soon as you complete 15 repetitions, you need to start another exercise of the superset, without taking any break.

6. Hanging Leg Raises

This is an isolation exercise for hip muscles and abdominal muscles. Hanging from a bar with extended arms, you raise your legs parallel to the ground. It is more intense exercise than vertical leg raises. The movement is controlled by putting pressure on the hip muscles, and abdominal muscles and pressure is felt there. You have to keep your focus on the form and avoid dwindling while performing this exercise.

7. Front Squats

Now drive your elbows up so your upper arms are parallel to the ground. Your arms should also be parallel to each other. This is the grip you will hold throughout the lift. Now, take a deep breath in, tighten your core and pull the shoulder blades down and back. Come down in a squat position, bend your knees and push your knees out to lower down. Breathe out while doing so. Continue until your thighs are parallel to the ground.
