🔥 TUTORIAL GAIN MASS IN TRICEPS👇
✅ Triceps consists of 3 heads: a ✅ Medial, a ✅ Lateral and a ✅ Long Head. The medial and lateral heads are nicely worked with all pressing exercises, but the long head which gives the tricep the horseshoe look, requires specific training -Here are tricep exercises that train all 3 heads
🚨 REVERSE GRIP TRICEP PUSH DOWN
Great exercise to add into your tricep workout and change things up. Will have to use lower weight compared to the traditional tricep push down but the contraction you feel in your triceps is insane
🚨 Tricep Rope Push Downs
This is a great exercise to target your triceps. Try to keep your upper arm still and push down and out. Pushing out will also fully engage your triceps so don’t forget to do that at the bottom of the motion.
🚨 TRICEPS TRAINING TIP: KEEP YOUR ARMS DIAGONAL TO THE PLANE 👇
✅ When it comes to training your triceps extensions you always want your arms to be “diagonally placed” to the plane.
That means either leaning a little bit forward when standing, or pushing your arms a little backwards if laying down (e.g. skullcrushers).
Basically, if you draw a horizontal line, you never want your arms to cut the line peroendicularly (creating two 90 degree angles) but rather at a diagonal angle < 90 degrees.
✅✅✅ Besides being the best way to fully engage your triceps safely and for the whole set of work, it’s actually a better arm leverage compared to the perpendicular one (as seen on the right).
❌❌❌ When your arm is perpendicularly placed to the horizontal plane, and the angle of your arm is reduced, your ability to engage your triceps reduces, and that can actually cause you to hurt yourself when doing the exercises.
Hopefully it makes sense. Apply this cue to your tricep trainig game and it’ll do wonders.
