One of the most basic
exercises with resistance bands, resistance band triceps
extensions are an isolation exercise for the triceps brachii muscle. The
set-up simply involves anchoring the resistance band as high as you can.
NOTE: you can perform this exercise kneeling on floor if high surface is
Making sure your upper body is upright and in good posture which includes
retracted shoulder blades and a tight, drawn in core you simply extend both
arms while your elbows are in at your sides. Increased resistance can be
accomplished by using additional or a stronger resistance band, or moving
further away from the origin of the resistance bands.
Since triceps extensions are an isolation exercise, they should be
performed after the most intense compound movements in multiple body part
workouts (for most circumstances). In addition to adding resistance you can
change up the angle and orientation in which you perform the triceps
extensions. Also see:
