Anyone who has ever trained with me knows that one of the “side effects” of my style of training is strong ‘effing triceps! Because of this, I’m constantly getting asked [from athletes and washed-up meatheads alike] to list my “Top” triceps exercises. So I decided to shoot a quick video and share my “best of the best” triceps exercises with the world! [You’re welcome.] 🙂
NOTE: The video below reveals “my” favorite exercises. This doesn’t mean there aren’t other quality triceps exercises…all it means is that these seven exercises have worked the best for me and my athletes. And if you want strong, horseshoe-looking triceps…they’ll work for you too!
The video below reveals one of my all-time favorite bodyweight “finishers” for the triceps. Up until this point, I reserved this “finisher” for my athletes and VIP clients only. It is ideal for those who travel a lot and may have to train in shitty hotel gyms with minimal equipment – or worse yet – a hotel room with NO equipment!
[Besides being a “stand alone” workout on days that you’re pressed for time, can’t get to the gym, or you’re stuck in a bad hotel; it can also be used as a “finisher” at the end of an Upper Body workout. 1-2 sets is all you’ll need before you start cursing me out! lol]
DESCENDING BODYWEIGHT TRICEPS CIRCUIT [see video below]
a. Bodyweight Triceps Extensions x 10
b. Diamond Push-ups x 8
c. Plank-to-Pushup x 6 each arm
d. Eccentric Push-ups (6-10sec lowering) x 4
*The goal is to not let your knees touch the ground at any point during the circuit.
