Dumbbell Tricep Exercises

How to Get the Most from Dumbbell Tricep Exercises In order to reap the benefits of the dumbbell tricep exercise, you must do several repetitions and sets. As reported by Dr. Laskowski of the Mayo Clinic, majority of the people doing tricep workouts need to do only a set per day with 12-15 repetitions. However, this comes with the condition that the bicep muscle must be worked to fatigue. This means that lifting the dumbbell in your last repetition will be a problem. Thus, you might need to vary the weights of your dumbbells.As you go about your tricep exercise with dumbbells you will realize it will get to a point you no longer feel fatigued. Increasing the sets will not help as much as adding the weight of the dumbbell. It is advisable to increase the weight of your dumbbell weekly by 5-10%.

Dumbbell Tricep Exercises

The cross face lying tricep extension is another on of the simple tricep exercises that is best performed at a low weight. Lying dumbbell extensions work the whole triceps muscle, though they are especially effective at training the upper triceps. Due to the position of the elbow during the movement, using too high a weight or using improper form can result in an elbow injury. Because lying tricep extensions are a shaping exercise, they should be performed slowly and deliberately, making sure to go through the full range of motion. The change in position of the arm (across the body rather than straight up and down) works the tricep in a different manner. Performing the exercise one arm at a time allows the user to focus on the movement and really isolate the tricep muscle.

The dumbbell tricep press is one of the fundamental tricep exercises for building mass. It can  be performed either seated or standing. Seated is preferable to standing for those with lower back problems. This exercise works the entire tricep. By performing the press with a dumbbell, you are forced to use a close-grip and isolate the tricep. If this exercise can not be performed without the flaring of the elbows, lower the weight and perform the exercise again.

The tricep press is a good mass building exercise that can be performed either seated or standing. Seated is preferable to standing for those with lower back problems. The tricep press works the entire tricep. This exercise is usually performed with an EZ bar, but it can be performed with a straight bar if that is preferred. A close-to-medium grip should be used for maximum isolation of the tricep. Be certain not to use too close of a grip as they may cause pressure on your elbow. If the tricep press can not be performed without the flaring of the elbows, lower the weight.

6 Best Dumbbell Tricep Exercises How to Get the Most from Dumbbell Tricep Exercises Most men tend to ignore under arms workouts despite the fact that large biceps are what most of them desire. Instead, you should take advice from your girlfriend and learn that flabby underarms are nothing close to sexy. However, if you work out your triceps alongside your biceps, you will have well-toned underarms that will be good for flaunting in your sleeveless t-shirts. Try the following tricep workouts and get them in perfect shape.

The EZ bar tricep extension is one of the simple tricep exercises that builds size and strength. Tricep extensions work the whole triceps muscle though they are especially effective at training the upper triceps. Due to the position of the elbow during the movement, using too high a weight or using improper form can result in an elbow injury. If the user experiences elbow pain when performing a tricep extension, the upper arms should be angled away from the upper body, rather than perpendicular to it. Another way to limit elbow problems is to not let them flare during the exercise. A little elbow movement is normal and acceptable.

The tricep pressdown with cable is one of the primary mass-building tricep exercises. This exercise can be performed using a variety of bars attached to the cable. If using a straight bar, the wider the grip, the more the outside of the tricep is exercised. Going with too close of a grip may cause wrist or forearm pain. If this occurs, widen the grip. Tricep cable pressdowns can also be performed using a v-bar. The v-bar angles the hands, allowing for a close grip, while limiting wrist or forearm discomfort.

An advantage of performing this exercise with dumbbells rather than an EZ bar is that each arm is able to work independently.

1 Standing Bent-Over Two-Arm Dumbbell Tricep Exercise With your palms facing your torso and a dumbbell in each hand, bend your waist by bending the knees a little bit and bringing your torso forward. Keep your back as straight as possible and your head up. The hands should hold the weights, make sure that your upper arms are close to your torso and the forearms are pointing thee floor. For this to be effective, make sure that you have a 90 degree angle between your upper arm and forearm.Maintain your upper arms in a stationary position, exhale as you use your triceps to lift the weights till your forearms are parallel to the floor.Inhale as you bring the dumbbell back to its original position after the second contraction. Repeat these for the recommended number of times.

The dip exercise is one of the combination tricep exercises that works both the chest and the triceps depending on the position of the hands and legs. The closer the hands are together, the more the exercise works the triceps; therefore, a wider grip works the lower chest. Leaning forward (and pulling your legs back slightly) will shift the weight over your chest more, making it a low chest workout. The dip exercise is also one of the great tricep exercises because it can be performed using just your body weight, allowing you to see the progress as the amount of repetitions you can do.

The close grip bench press is one of the fundamental tricep exercises for building tricep size. The chest also receives a secondary workout and this should be factored in when adding this exercise to any routine. This exercise should be performed with your hands as close together as possible, but this can be an uncomfortable position. Any grip position with the hands less than shoulder-width apart will be sufficient. The closer the hands are together, the more the exercise hits the triceps and not the chest.

Machine dips are one of the ideal tricep exercises for those looking to utilize the dip motion, but do not feel comfortable or are not able to perform body weight dips. This exercise can add mass to the triceps, especially around the elbow. Most dip machines offer the user the option of using a wide or close grip. The close grip should be used because it makes this more of a tricep exercise than a chest one. However, if the close grip creates pain in the wrist or elbows, a wider grip may be used, though it should be noted that this will engage the chest more.
