Triceps – Thicker Arms Resistance Band Exercise

December 23, 2020

Triceps – Thicker Arms Resistance Band Exercise. OVERHEAD BAND EXTENSION Let’s target the biggest and longest head of the triceps….

This muscle also equals the most muscle mass% for the entire upper arm.

Hence why building it leads to arm thickness.

FOCUS

  • It’s all about the stretch (extension). That’s the focus. Not so much the top squeeze…
  • … super slow, steady and controlled
  • Stretch behind the head as far as comfortably possible on the negative. Like a static tricep stretch hold *refer to vid 15 sec in
  • Push upwards, not forwards
  • Shoulders retracted, pulled back and down
  • Try not to straighten the arms fully out. This takes the load/tension off the tricep and transfers it through the shoulder joint. Keep a slight bend.⁣ If the grip feels uncomfortable? Use a hammer grip with palms together, thumbs down – pinky up.

TEMPO⁣:⁣

  • 4 sec downward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 1 sec stretch at bottom⁣⁣⁣ (push to 2 for more intensity)
  • 1 sec contraction upward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 0 sec pause at the top

As this is a bottom end stretch focus, I love to pair it (super set) with a top end contraction focus.

Hence the close hand knee press ups at the end

*37 sec in… ..super important to focus on the top squeeze for 2 seconds here, really squeeze the hell of out of the triceps.

These two back to back for 3 sets give one mighty burn!

Stay safe stay healthy
