Anatomy of the Tricep

The tricep is composed of three heads hence the work “tri”. They all attach down at the olecranon process meaning it crosses the elbow joint. This mean it will create the joint action of elbow extension.



The medial and lateral head of the tricep originate up on the back side of the humerus.

The long head of the tricep is different though. It originates up on the infraglenoid tubercle of the scapula. This means it crosses the shoulder joint as well (crosses both shoulder and elbow) so it can also extend the shoulder.
