Triceps Exercises To Build Big Muscular Arms

Aug 17, 2007
So you want to get big muscular arms. Then you will have to build big triceps with correct triceps exercises.

In almost every public gym and probably without exception, you will see people working out with bicep curls after bicep curls. If someone were to ask them to show their muscles, they will almost invariably flex their biceps. What about you? Well, since you are reading this article, then you probably do know that in order to own big muscular arms, you must build big triceps muscles.

Why is this so, you may ask. The reason is simply that your triceps is 2/3 the size of your arms. Just imagine, your biceps is only 30% while your triceps make up 60% of your arm size. So if you are neglecting your triceps exercises, you are neglecting 60% of your arms while working on the miniscule 30% called the biceps. Of course you still need to do your biceps exercises for that well rounded balanced muscular arms look.

On top of that, as your triceps are also involved in many other muscle building exercises such as military presses, bench presses, chin ups and many other exercises, having stronger triceps will help you to lift heavier weights in those other exercises and thus will be encouraging more muscular growth in other body parts.

Your triceps consist of three main muscles whereas your biceps has only 2 muscle heads, thus their respective names begin with "tri" and "bi". That is another reason why your triceps should be built bigger.

Triceps Excercises Correct Form

So you have been training your triceps but do not see good triceps muscles development or you may even hit the plateau? It could possibly be that your movements during your reps are not performed to its full range of motion. As the mass concentration of triceps muscles are at the top of the arm, it is therefore necessary for you have to stretch your arms beyond what you feel that is natural in order to reach into the deep fibers of your triceps muscles.

Further more, your form must be strict with minimal elbow movement when performing triceps exercises like skull crushes and triceps extensions. These exercises reach deep into your triceps muscles when you do it with full range of movement.

Triceps exercises like close grip bench press, diamond pushups and cable pushdowns do not give you that full range of movement as the range of these exercises are limited. This is not to say that you do not perform these exercises, just that do not get too heated under your collar if you are not doing them.

So to build big triceps, you must feel the pull of your triceps muscles when the weight is at its lowest position before pulling them back to the starting position.

Want to have big muscular arms ripping out of your sleeves? Then do not forget to work hard on your triceps exercises and do them in good form.
