How to Do

How to Do Seated Overhead Tricep Press on Ball, Tricep Curls

Start off by grabbing your dumbbell and sitting on a stability ball. Keep good posture by sitting up tall with your back straight while looking straight forward.

Each exercise should begin with a good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop this exercise.

Beginning

Beginning Overhead Tricep Press

Keep an even grip on the dumbbell.  To do so, use a diamond grip with your hands. Both of your palms will be facing away with your thumbs and index first fingers touching. Using this grip will allow you to enclose your hands around the head of the dumbbell so you can evenly balance the weight between your two arms.

Movement

Overhead Tricep Press Movement

1. Once you have the grip of the dumbbell, you are going to bring it over your head so that your arms are straight.

2. Bend your arms at your elbows so the weight comes down behind your head. Make sure you don't flare your elbows out, this takes the emphasis off of the triceps.

3. Bring the weight down in a slow and controlled movement, stopping once your arms make a 90 degree angle.

4. Bring the weight back up to the top in a slow and controlled movement and repeat for the chosen repetitions.

Benefits

Overhead Tricep Press Benefits

The primary advantage of the overhead triceps extension is the triceps hypertrophy that occurs as a result of the motion. Unlike other triceps exercises, the triceps extension activates all three heads of the triceps, which means that this exercise will strengthen your entire triceps.
