  • Modified French press is an isometric contraction of the triceps. This is a good way to strengthen your triceps to enable you to perform more advanced triceps exercises.

    The EZ bar tricep extension is one of the simple tricep exercises that builds size and strength. Tricep extensions work the whole triceps muscle though they are especially effective at training the upper triceps. Due to the position of the elbow during the movement, using too high a weight or using improper form can result in an elbow injury. If the user experiences elbow pain when performing a tricep extension, the upper arms should be angled away from the upper body, rather than perpendicular to it. Another way to limit elbow problems is to not let them flare during the exercise. A little elbow movement is normal and acceptable.

  • The close grip bench press is one of the fundamental tricep exercises for building tricep size. The chest also receives a secondary workout and this should be factored in when adding this exercise to any routine. This exercise should be performed with your hands as close together as possible, but this can be an uncomfortable position. Any grip position with the hands less than shoulder-width apart will be sufficient. The closer the hands are together, the more the exercise hits the triceps and not the chest.

    Below are some triceps exercises that zone in on the long head:
    • Skulls/lying triceps extensions/ French press
    • Overhead extension (reverse grip too)
    • Pushdown using straight bar with a narrow grip
    • Close-grip bench press
    • Dips

    How To Perform Exercise Targeted Muscle Group
    The seated tricep dip exercise uses a machine to work the tricep muscles while in a seated position.

    Steps :

    1.) Start off by adjust the seat of the machine so that the handles are equal with your elbows.

    2.) Grasping the handles press down with equal pressure till your arms are fully extended.

    3.) Pause, hold for a count and then return to the starting position.

    4.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

    The dumbbell extension is one of the simple tricep exercises that is best performed at a low weight. Dumbbell extensions work the whole triceps muscle, though they are especially effective at training the upper triceps. Due to the position of the elbow during the movement, using too high a weight or using improper form can result in an elbow injury. Because dumbbell extensions are a shaping exercise, they should be performed slowly and deliberately, making sure to go through the full range of motion. An advantage of performing this exercise with dumbbells rather than an EZ bar is that each arm is able to work independently.

The close-grip bench press is a great way to work the triceps along with the chest and the shoulders. It's like a chest press but, because your hands are closer together and you keep the bar further down towards the ribcage, you keep the emphasis on the triceps. With the chest there to help, you can usually lift more weight than with other triceps exercises. You can do this move with a barbell, as shown, or with dumbbells (the palms face each other when using dumbbells).
