Importance of Tricep Muscles
Triceps are the key to adding to your overall arm size. They are the bigger muscle in the arms (bigger than the biceps), and will also be present in a handful of upper-body lifts. Talk about impacting overall strength, your triceps are present in chest presses, shoulder presses, and really any exercise that involves pushing. These all engage the triceps to some degree. Below we cover barbell, dumbbell and bodyweight tricep exercises. Each will lend itself better to a certain goal. Feel free to explore the exercises below and pull inspiration to create your perfect, personalized triceps workout. If you’re unsure which tricep exercises work best for strengthening or toning, or which exercises require more weight and lower reps, Grant’s arm program does a tremendous job incorporating all of these techniques. Remember, the trial is free, so give it a shot to see how Grant uses a range of exercises to hit every part of the tricep.
