Explode Your Arms With These Tricep Dumbbell Exercises

Explode Your Arms With These Tricep Dumbbell Exercises

In case you were unaware, the triceps are the muscles in your arm that are on the other side from your biceps. If you have a set of dumbbells, their placement makes them the ideal muscle to train with them.

I'll discuss a couple of the workouts you may perform with a dumbbell that will target your triceps in this article. But first, I thought I should go over why it's so crucial that you strengthen your triceps. There is no purpose in doing a lot of bicep work if you are not counteracting the growth by doing tricep training, thus if you do any bicep exercises at all, you will absolutely need to undertake tricep exercises in order to equal out the arm muscle growth!

That's out of the way now. Here are a few triceps exercises you may do:

Tricep extensions over the head

Your arms will be directly over your head during this exercise, allowing the dumbbell to touch your upper back. After that, you will raise your arms all the way up before lowering them again. One rep equals this. Keep your elbows from locking.

Raised Laterals

In this exercise, your arms are raised up and outward until they are both forming a straight line while the dumbbells in either hand are resting against your body. After a brief period of holding this position, return to your starting position.

Forward Raising

Similar to the previous dumbbell exercise, with the exception that this time you will lift your arms outward and forward rather than to the side. When the arms are parallel to the floor, hold the position and then gradually lower the dumbbells back to the beginning position.
