So today we shall be looking at the best exercises to get those triceps bigger and stronger, after all why wouldn’t you want them bigger? They do account for two thirds of the arm, making them the biggest muscle in the arm. A lot of people turn all of their attention to the biceps when it comes to working out at the gym, but the truth is that the triceps make up most of the definition in the upper half of your body. Carrying out exercises that concentrate on the triceps is very important for your upper body strength. Now we shall take a look at some great Tricep workouts.
Push ups, everybody knows the position to get in for a push up, but for those of you who are not sure if you have been doing it right, first thing to do is lie flat on your belly, keep your legs extended straight behind you with your palms flat on the floor in line with your shoulders. Now spread your fingers out wide like you’re going to give a high five. Supporting you’re weight through your forearms and toes, keep a slight bend in your elbows and raise your torso off the ground keeping it as straight and rigged as a plank. We recommend 10-12 reps and 3 sets.
Skull crushers, don’t worry, you are not going to be crushing skulls….yet, however with this exercise we recommend to start on a weight you feel very comfortable with until you get use to the exercise and feel you can handle more weight. First things first grab a workout bench and adjust it so that it is flat. Now get yourself an S-Z bar and load it up with a weight you feel comfortable with. Now grab the bar with your palms facing towards you and your hands two thumb widths apart. With the bar in your hand sit on the end of the bench and lay down flat, extend your arms straight up towards the ceiling whilst firmly gripping the bar. Keeping your elbows still and in line with your shoulders lower the bar towards your skull. With the bar just above your skull push back to the starting position.
