Developing the Muscles of the Triceps

Back to Muscle Group

1)      Start by grasping a single

dumbbell with both hands.


2)      Position yourself in an

almost upright position.


3)      Keep your chest out, and

your back straight.


4)      Your elbows should be

pointed upwards towards the ceiling to isolate your triceps best.


5)      Make sure that your feet

are shoulder width apart

for better balance.


6)      Begin by extending the

dumbbell upwards while

keeping your elbows locked

in a position vertical to

your body.


7)      Once you’ve reached the

end of your range of

motion squeeze/flex your

triceps to better target the

muscles involved.


8)      Slowly lower the dumbbell

to the starting position to

complete one repetition.
