How to do Triceps Exercises with Resistance Bands

Tricep muscles are composed of three heads: lateral head, long head, and medial head – hence the TRI in triceps. Target your triceps more acutely by keeping your wrists straight and elbows planted in a fixed position with your upper arms still.

One key differentiator between working out your triceps with resistance bands instead of machines or iron is the ascending resistance you get through your entire range of motion. The further you stretch the band the harder it is, which works to your advantage because your muscles give more force the further they contract. Try to slow your tempo and flex your triceps at the point of maximum resistance for a few moments to get a deep muscle contraction before releasing.

Our resistance bands are widely used for these exercises. Please feel encouraged to invent new ways to use your bands and share by posting and tagging @rubberbanditz.
