One Arm Overhead Tricep Extension
In the one-arm overhead tricep extension, you hold a dumbbell with one arm straight overhead. Then, you
lower the dumbbell behind your head toward your opposite shoulder, eventually returning it to the
starting position. This exercise highlights the beauty of using dumbbells instead of a barbell. The
single arm makes use of a greater range of motion and lets you isolate one tricep at a time. Instead of
forcing your elbows to point straight ahead, like with a barbell, you can drop the tricep in a more
natural path down toward your opposite shoulder.
High Rep Tricep Exercises
In the overview of tricep exercises, we covered that some exercises are better for lower-reps, strength
and size. While dumbbell exercises could work for both, one place they really separate themselves is in
the high-rep training. Varieties of extensions and kickbacks are often used to get that high-rep pump in
the gym. These workouts are also great for making the muscle ‘pop’. The trainers on Daily Spot
incorporate dumbbell tricep exercises in a variety of ways. As an example, grant may complement
lower-rep barbell exercises (close-grip bench press) with single-arm overhead extensions. This achieves
the complete workout that we’re looking for. Strength and definition across the entire tricep.
