OVERVIEW

Triceps

QUICK VIDEOS

By Part of Tool

WIDE

Avoid pressing on the scapular spine and borders of the scapula.

NARROW

Great to work on the medial portion of the muscle and around the bony prominences.

ROUNDED HEADPIECE

Best to use at the lateral side of the muscle into the shoulder with either dynamic or static use.

Key Takeaways

  • The triceps has three heads; only the long head crosses the shoulder joint.
  • Together, they create elbow extension.
  • The long head helps to stabilize the shoulder joint and creates some motion, but is not a prime mover.

Precautions

Avoid pressing into the armpit on the humerus when working the proximal part of the triceps.
