Training The Triceps


From pushing boxes, tables, chairs or any furniture around the house (and sometimes people), we are using our triceps to do it! Now why is it called triceps? It’s because we have two different muscles in the biceps and three muscles in the triceps.

We have all seen the infamous horseshoe in the back of the arms of bodybuilders only to aspire to have the the same shape and form in our own arms. The triceps are bigger than the biceps (data) because it has more muscles than the biceps. We work and work our triceps trying to shape that horseshoe we saw, but its not taking form. Why?

Well, maybe you haven’t been hitting all the different angles to hit all those tricep muscles you have. Here’s a list of some tricep workouts to help get those muscles fired up and start taking form:

  • Dips
  • Tricep pulldowns
  • Reverse tricep pulldowns
  • Dumbbell overhead extensions
  • Head crushers (inside/mid/wide grip)
