Very Useful Tricep Exercises
1: Skull Crushers Drop Set
I’d been doing and using “skull crushers” for years on a bench press before i saw the drop set version in one of Arnold’s muscle training manuals. According to the book, his colleagues and Arnold did an experiment and study to find out the very best exercises for each body part. And they established that the potency of the exercises are based on the motion of the exercise which in this case the Skull Crusher. So in this exercise, instead of limiting the motion and the weights bar stopping to your forehead. You can do the motion further down and below your head for the maximum muscle stretch and movement.
2: Weighted Dips
Your triceps will benefit more when your elbow lies below your shoulder. Why dips is one of the very best tricep exercises is that because the position of your arm will allow you to lift a lot of your body weight including whatever weight that you include.
3: Close-grip Bench-press
This tricep exercise is also one of the most useful tricep exercises. You will definitely require a spotter to assist and help you lift the barbell while doing this exercise. It might feel awkward in the beginning but after performing a couple of sets, you will get used to it and it will start to feel normal. A suggestion is to always bring a friend that can spot you.
So there you go! The 3 of the best tricep exercises for anybody to include in their tricep exercise routines.
