3 Tricep Workouts to Beat the Flab


When it comes time to start sporting swim suits and tank tops, it often becomes apparent that our triceps are not as in shape as we thought they were. When you go to wave hello, you will see these jiggly bits that need toning and tapering. It is often surprising, because even the most dutiful fitness connoisseurs that work out regularly can miss this spot. Fortunately, tricep workouts can help you get this area toned fast so that you no longer have to worry about batwings.

One-Arm Press

This move requires no equipment except for an exercise mat or towel. To start, lie on your right side with your legs slightly bent and place your right arm on your left shoulder. Press your left palm into the floor to lift your upper body, extending the arm until it’s completely straight. Do several reps, then switch sides.

Shoulder Press

For this exercise, you will need a set of dumbbells that are somewhat heavy for you. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and the weight in your hands. Bend your elbows to bring your hands to your shoulders, and then press the weights up over your head until your arms straighten. Bring the weights back to your shoulders, then lower them back down with a controlled motion. Perform several reps, then rest.

Tricep Kick-Back

You will need that set of heavy-ish dumbbells again for this exercise. Start with you feet together and your knees slightly bent. Bend down and bring the dumbbells up to your shoulders. Bring the dumbbells back behind you and hold for just a second, squeezing tightly, before bringing the dumbbells forward again. Repeat for several reps, then rest.

Work these exercises into your regular weekly routines to see fast results!
