I’ve got three more great moves to help tone your triceps here. Last time we
did: skull crushers, side push-up, and triangle push-ups. Today we move on to a few moves, one you probably have not heard of before! I like to find new ways to get results – doing the same routine day in and out is boring and often times it’s why people lose the motivation to workout. I will start off with the familiar one to get you going. If you missed part one, here it is!
This is the classic tricep exercise. Leaning over a bench, you’ll attach your upper arm to your side. Hinge at the elbow and always pull from your tricep. Be sure to keep you core engaged, back flat and make sure to get a full extension each rep.
This is the fun new one! You’ll want to use a lighter weight here. You are literally simulating throwing a football. Moving slowly, don’t be afraid to let your body twist a little to get that full extension.
Hanging Dips/Bench Dips
This is a more advanced move, so if you need to, you can always modify with bench dips or an assisted hanging dip.For hanging: Hold yourself up on the two dip handles and slowly bend your arms, lowering yourself towards the ground… lower until arms are at 90 degrees. If on a bench, dip down till 90 degrees make sure not to go lower as this can put pressure on your shoulders.
