Are you looking to improve the strength and size of your arms? Doing a number of tricep exercises for mass can help you to get those sought after ripped arms.
When everyone thinks of the glamour muscles they first think of biceps, but you can’t forget about your triceps. They are as much a part of the glamour muscles as the biceps.
You should train your triceps as much as you as you train your biceps, shoulders, and back.
So what are some good tricep exercises to get some awesome looking arms?
Tricep Dumbbell Kickbacks – With dumbbell on your side lean back. Your arm should be shaped like an “L” on your side. Push the weight toward your butt. Squeeze tricep when your arm is fully extended.
Stay loose and move your arm naturally when performing your reps.
Tricep Dips – A great tricep exercise to do when you aren’t at the gym and weights might not be an option. Using a chair, place your arms close to the edge giving yourself enough room to dip in front of the chair.
Dips will absolutely blast your triceps when you do enough reps. Do these and feel the burn! Do these enough and say hello to ripped arms.
Close Grip Bench Press – You want to have your hands about 8 to 10 inches apart, a little less than regular bench press. Lower weight to chest, pause for a moment then bring back to the top.
Tricep Cable Pressdown – Get a good firm grip with your hands shoulder width apart, make sure to be a few steps in front of the machine too. With the bar almost touching your forehead, lean forward and pull the bar towards the ground for your first rep. Lock your elbows at the bottom and squeeze your triceps.
Use full range of motion when doing the reps to get the most out of your workout, bring the bar as far up as possible and far enough to the bottom to lock out your elbows.
Close Grip Push Up – The close grip push up is a great exercise to target your triceps. It is a great option to do if you are not at the gym.
Hold your arms a few inches closer in than a traditional push up. Lower yourself to about 2 inches off the ground then come back up. Do as many reps as you can do. This is one of those exercises you can do until your body won’t let you anymore.
Whether it’s winter, summer, spring, or fall you can achieve ripped arms. Do these 5 tricep exercises for mass to build some sexy looking glamour muscles to impress the ladies.
