ATHLEAN-X 90 Day Workout Program: http://athleanx.com/x/tricepsexercises
There are lots of different triceps exercises to choose from when trying to get bigger triceps. Lots of guys will try and target each of the three tricep heads individually by doing exercises that hit the lateral, long and medial portions of the muscle. The problem with this approach is that it goes against what I feel are the requirements of a Top Triceps Exercise, and certainly one you should add to your triceps workout! Namely, the exercises are too specific. What if there was a way to hit all areas of the triceps at once?
In this video I show you a very effective option that combines the nosebreaker with the close grip bench press and diamond pushup! You work the entire triceps muscle and carve out the noticeable horseshoe by blending in each of the movements required to fully activate the muscle.
With components of both elbow extension and shoulder extension, this triceps exercise allows you to get the most bang for your buck, and shorten your workout time in the process. If you need more range of motion on this one, simply use a couple of 45 pound plates on the bar instead of the 25’s that I am demonstrating, as this will give you more room to drop your head and bend your elbows.
It’s no secret that lots of guys obsess about getting bigger arms and building bigger triceps! Why? Because they are noticeable even without ever having to take off your shirt. Unless you plan on wearing long sleeve shirts all year long, there’s not much you can do to hide an underdeveloped pair of arms.
With this tricep exercise option, hopefully you won’t have to worry about it any more. The key is to use the correct form…shown in this Top Triceps Exercise (Add to Your Triceps Workout!) video.
