The overhead tricep extension is a single-joint exercise that targets the triceps, the muscles on the back of your arms. This exercise really isolates the triceps in order to focus on them, without the assistance of other muscle groups.

Benefits of Overhead Tricep Extensions

  • Tricep Isolation
  • Great to sculpt the arms
  • Tricep Strengthening, which translates into stronger and more stable shoulders and elbows
