The following basic triceps exercises will get you strong and cut triceps muscles. Pay attention closely to the three workouts and you will see quality results. Choose the best tricep exercise for you!
The first exercise you should attempt is called dumbbell kickbacks. To perform this exercise select a desired dumbbell weight. Find a flat bench and decide which triceps muscle you want to exercise first, as you will only workout one muscle at a time. For the sake of this article, select your right triceps first. So place your left knee on the bench and place your right foot flat on the ground with your leg fully extended. Then lean forward to grab the dumbbell and lift it up until your elbow is at a 90 degree angle. Next, fully extend your arm, as now the dumbbell should be next to your thigh, and flex your triceps. Make sure to keep your elbow in tight, next to your body. Bring the dumbbell back to the 90 degree starting position. Repeat this exercise for about ten reps or as many as you seem fit and then switch arms. Repeat this process as many times as you want, but make sure to not over exercise your triceps.
The second exercise you should perform is the lying barbell extension. Select a desired barbell and find a flat bench. Lie down flat on the bench on your back. Grip the barbell with a slightly narrower width than your shoulders. Next, raise the barbell directly over your face with your arms fully extended. Now bring the bar slowly down, just bending your elbow until it reaches a 90 degree angle. The bar will be inches away from your face. Next slowly extend your arms fully again. Repeat this process as many times as you desire. Never over work your muscles!
The final triceps exercise that you should perform is triceps dips. Find a dip machine and grab both handles. Lift yourself upwards with your arms fully extended. Bend your knees so that your legs are at a 90 degree. Slowly lower your body until you reach the point where arms and elbows are at a 90 degree angle. Next, slowly lift your body back upwards. Repeat this step as many times as you want.
