TRICEPSSo we have been through the biceps so whats next....you got it its tricep time so here goes
DESCRIPTION/LOCATIONThe triceps are a group of muscles that can be located on the rear of the arm. Sometimes ignored and forgotten the triceps can really fill out the arms and give a great sculpted look. Tri - meining three, there are three heads of the triceps the Lateral, Long and Medial heads. So if your only focusing on one exercise for the tricep mabe its time to engage different heads and see what works best for you.
Firstly a classic and a great move for one and all.
|Push down and repeat|
Tricep Push Downs
For this movement you will require a cable station with a high pully. Take a V-handle attatchment and clip it onto the high cable pully. Next standing quite close take a overhand grip on the handle and whilst keeping the elbows tucked into the body push the bar/handle down then controll back up.
Triceps - you can utilise different handles/grips to engage different heads of the triceps
Dumbell Tricep Extension
This is a great but very challenging exercise.
You will need a bench and set of dumbells. Right now you are set up take the dumbells and lay flat on your back with the dumbells at chest level. Next extend the dumbells upwards, when they are in this position keep your elbows in this position and bend the arms towards the head. ( dumbells are usually held vertically in each hand). A partner/spotter is always best to ensure good form and tempo.
This movement/exercise works all three heads of the tricep equally also working multiple stabalising muscles.
