Triceps Press

In Trainer Tips by inshape

By Judy Oberdorfer, Certified Personal Trainer

This exercise works the triceps (muscles in back of upper arm).  Starting from a slight squat position with your hands near your shoulders.  Press the arms straight back in slow, controlled motion, pausing for a moment when the arms are straight.  Slowly bend the arms back to their original position.  Try not to swing from the shoulders, but keep the movement from the elbow. For more of a challenge, bring your torso forward so it’s parallel to the floor.
