10 Exercises That Target the Triceps

Spring is around the corner, which means you’ll be bringing your short sleeved and sleeveless tops out of storage in no time. Speaking of baring your arms: Are yours in tip-top shape? If not, you could help build strength and muscle tone in the most common problem area of the arms—the triceps—by adding some additional triceps exercises to your workout plan.

The primary function of the triceps brachii muscle is to extend (straighten) the elbow. It has three heads, or bundles (hence the name triceps), all of which connect at the elbow joint. And while this muscle plays a pretty important function in our daily activities, it also tends to be a body part we’re most motivated to focus on right around tank top season!

Whether you want to build strength or look great in a sleeveless shirt (or both), here are some of my favorite moves for toning up your triceps. The bonus with these is that many of them also target the shoulders, which can give you an even more defined and sculpted look.
