Introduction to Triceps Training


BodybuildingPro.com Exercise Index Triceps Introduction to Triceps Training

The Muscles of the Triceps

The triceps brachii is a three headed muscle (tri for three, in the name triceps) that works in opposition to the biceps. It attaches under the deltoid and below the able.

Our triceps muscles work anytime we straighten our arms or twist our wrist upward. Many of the exercises which isolate the triceps are close grip in nature such as close grip bench press or cable pushdowns. Our triceps, contrary to popular belief, comprise 60 - 70% of our upper arms, and should therefore be emphasized more than biceps in our arm training to create the appearance of a large arm.
