My Top 6 Triceps Exercises

Triceps & Strength

Many people fail to notice that no matter how big of biceps you have, your strength will dwindle if you have weak triceps muscles. Everyone usually focuses on making a stronger bicep & bigger biceps but when it comes to triceps, it goes to the waist-side. It’s true, that if your triceps are strong & defined, then your overall arm strength will increase as well, not to say to ignore bicep workouts, but it’s to say that focusing only on building a bicep muscle is not going to make your bench press that much higher than it is now & your pull up game will fall short due to weaker triceps as well. Now with all things considered both of the mentioned exercises have other body parts that need strengthening to make the world go round, but for now, I want to focus on the triceps & help speed ya up to par with this body part, so you can be well-rounded and strong. Below are a list of 5 triceps exercises you should implement in your workouts for mass and strength & don’t be afraid to use different variations/ equipment — “The world is your oyster”

  1. Weighted Bench dips / Weighted Dips (if you can’t do weighted just yet, try just body weight)
  2. DB Triceps kickback (sometimes people’s form sucks because they use more shoulder, really focus in on the triceps) or use another form of equipment that won’t hinder your triceps from being used
  3. Skullcrushers 
  4. DB overhead triceps extension/ single arm overhead triceps extension
  5. Barbell close grip bench press
  6. Diamond Pushups 

Hopefully with this tid bit of exercises, it can get you started on building some bigger, stronger muscles!
