Movement

Overhead Tricep Extension Movement

1. Raise your arm and bring the tubing handle overhead. Your elbow should be fully extended with the handle directly over your shoulder.

2. Keeping your upper arms stationary next to your ear throughout the movement, bend your elbow and lower the handle toward the back of your neck. Extend your elbow to return the handle to your starting position. Continue performing the exercise until you've completed all required repetitions. Switch sides and repeat.

3. Don't let your elbow flare out to the side and make sure that your back remains strong throughout and does not arch. You should also be careful not to lower your head to your chest. Look ahead of you, and keep your head in line with your neck.

4. To make the exercise more challenging, and to stimulate the triceps muscle in different ways, you can vary the angle of the tubing to your body. So for example, you can fix the tubing directly behind you, behind and to the right, behind and to the left, and so on.
