Tricep Stretch

Type: Stretching
This tricep stretch targets the tricep muscles located in the back of the upper arm. This group of muscles are responsible for extending the arm at the elbow joint. The tricep muscles are used in exercises such as the tricep extension and also play a secondary role by assisting the larger muscles in multiple joint moves such as the bench press and shoulder press. Perform this stretch after your arm workout to relieve tight muscles and help maintain flexibility. Below you'll find a video guide and step by step instructions that describes the correct technique for the tricep stretch.
