Developing the Muscles of the Triceps

Back to Muscle Group

1)      Start by grasping an EZ curl bar or a short-straight bar

with both hands.


2)      Lay down on a flat

bench and position the bar directly vertical to your body.



3)      Make sure that your feet

are firmly on the ground.



4)      Begin by lowering the

barbell  downwards while

keeping your elbows locked

in a position vertical to your

body and stop once you've nearly reached touching your forehead.


5)      Your elbows should be

pointed towards your toes

to isolate your triceps best.


6)      Extend the barbell back to the starting position and squeeze/flex your

triceps to better target the

muscles involved.
