Include in Your Tricep Workouts
This site is primarily about the abs, but here are 2 of the best tricep exercises for your tricep workouts.
You can also visit my other site www.All-About-Arm-Exercises.com to learn more arm toning exercises and tricep strengthening exercises.
Every exercise can be used by men and women, strength training can benefit everyone.
If your goal is to significantly increase your strength and build the most amount of muscle, choose a weight that will cause your biceps to fatigue between 5-10 repetitions.
If your goal is to get in better shape, increase your strength, tone up your arms, or build endurance, choose a weight that causes you to fatigue between 10-15 repetitions.
This page has one cable exercise for the triceps and one dumbbell exercise for the triceps.
Below are the pictures for these 2 exercises.
Tricep Exercises: Dumbbell Tricep Kickbacks
Starting Position: Place one knee and one hand on a bench to stabilize your body. Hold a dumbbell in your hand and bring your shoulder up so that it is in-line with your body.
Form: Exhale and straighten your elbow while keeping your shoulder next to your body. Hold for just a brief second and then slowly lower to the starting position.
Personal Trainer Tips: In this exercise, you must be mindful of the position of your lower back. Keep your spine in a neutral position-- not too arched and not too rounded over.
It is also important to keep your shoulder stable during this exercise. Move only from the elbow to isolate the triceps.
If you don't have access to a workout bench, you can use the floor or perform this exercise standing.
If you choose to do this exercise standing, your lower back will work harder to stabilize your spine.
Tricep Exercises: Cable Rope Pull Downs
Starting Position: Attach a rope to the upper portion of a cable machine. Grasp the rope and bring your shoulders in-line with your body.
Form: Exhale and pull the rope down so that your hands move towards your waist. Hold for a brief second and the top and then slowly lower to the starting position.
Personal Trainer Tips: Cable Exercises provide a constant tension on the muscles so you get a really good burn.
You can use different attachments for this exercise to slightly change the emphasis of the exercise.
If you are working out at home, you can use a resistance band to simulate this exercise. You would simply attach the resistance band to something sturdy and pull down in the same motion.
Some weight lifting exercises should be a part of any overall fitness program, and weight training can be an integral part of a weight management program.
When constructing a weight lifting routine, think about balance. Work most of your major muscles if you are doing a total body workout.
These are the 2 really good tricep exercises, so include them in your tricep workouts when you can.
Yours in Health,
