Instructions

There are three muscles that make up the triceps. They are the long head, medial head, and lateral head. The function of the triceps is to extend the elbow. So any time you push a door closed, throw a ball, or put something away in a cabinet, your triceps are involved. This version of the overhead triceps extension works great for the arms. This exercise has a medium difficulty classification because of the technique and muscular control required to facilitate the movement. First, anchor the exercise bands to any secure object (Note: Try to anchor the bands up high). This exercise is done from a lunging position, so your upper body should be bent at least 45 degrees or more. Hold the resistance bands behind your head. Your upper arms should be positioned around the ears. Next, fully extend your arms. When your arms are fully extended, try to squeeze the triceps. Exhale as you extend the arms, then slowly return to the starting position. It is important to keep your upper arms still and elbows in as you extend.
