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
- Stronger arms, which assist on your daily activities and better sport performance
The overhead tricep extension exercise is versatile. The video belows demonstrates the exercise using a dumbbell. However, it can be performed with a dumbbell, medicine ball, barbell, EZ bar, exercise band, cable machine or even a plate.
Remember, whether you want to lose weight, tone your body, gain strength or size, all muscles must be trained.
