✅ The triceps may not have the same cultural cache as their cousins on the other side of the humerus, but in the strength world, they’re just as important—if not more so! Whether you’re a bodybuilder or just someone looking to get stronger in your presses, it’s worth your time to add some size to the back of your arms.

🚨 Overall Triceps Mass

✅ Just because you’re training arms doesn’t mean your approach to building mass—like you do with, chest, legs, back, or shoulders—should change. Start with the most difficult moves with which you can push the heaviest weights.

Don’t even think about looking toward the cable press-down station. As I’ve often said, multijoint exercises in which more than a single set of joints are at work allow you to use greater loads. With triceps, it’s a pretty short list, including dips (machine dips, bench dips, weighted parallel-bar dips) and close-grip bench presses. With the latter, if balance is too difficult, try it on the Smith machine.

✅ Tips

  • Warm-up sets aren’t included; do as many as you need, but never take warm-ups to muscle failure.
  • Choose a weight that allows you to reach muscle failure by the target rep listed.
  • Go heavy on your first working set (first two sets of the first two exercises), and lighten the weight for slightly higher reps on successive sets.
  • If you have a spotter, do a few forced reps on your heaviest sets, which are your first two sets. If you don’t have a partner, train as close to muscle failure as possible, and perform a dropset on your last set of each exercise.

🚨 Greater Triceps Definition

Simply doing light weights for high reps to build better arm definition is no longer considered the best approach. This workout starts with a straight-sets multijoint exercise for an initial size and strength stimulus, then picks up the pace by employing supersets with a high volume of work. You’ll be moving faster and really feeling the muscle burn.

✅ Tips

  • Warm-up sets aren’t included; do as many as you need, but never take warm-ups to muscle failure.
  • Choose a weight that allows you to reach muscle failure by the target rep listed.
  • If you have a spotter, do a few forced reps on your heaviest sets of your initial exercise. If you don’t have a partner, train as close to muscle failure as possible.
  • Perform a dropset on your last set of each exercise after you complete both moves, quickly reducing the weight by about 25 percent when you reach muscle failure and continuing on with the set to a second point of muscle failure.

🚨 Starting Out

Beginners are encouraged to try different movements, to get a feel for the exercises and ensure they’re working all three triceps heads. I recommend starting with machines to rehearse the basic motions before graduating to free weights. Just make sure you adjust the machine for your body’s dimensions.

Though jumping over to free weights will prove to be a challenge for your coordination, they’re better for building muscle in the long term. Start light to focus on proper form first, adding weight only when you can fully control the motion.
