Your triceps are the large muscles on the back of your upper arms. They are responsible for many of your elbow, shoulder, and forearm movements.
Here is a four-step tricep workout that you can do at home:
- Narrow Grip Push-ups
- Tricep Dips
- Dumbbell Kickbacks
- Skull Crushers
In the video, I go through the circuit doing 5 reps of each exercise. Once I complete 5 reps of all four exercises, I start from the beginning and do 4 reps of each. You can then go through it all again with 3 reps each, then 2, then 1. And if you are ambitious, you can do that all again in the reverse (1, 2, 3, 4 5 reps).
Strengthening your triceps contributes to your overall upper body strength which makes it an essential part of any upper body strength training routine. Keeping your triceps strong can help stabilize your shoulders and allow you to do everyday activities and play many sports.
