Tricep Extension - Resistance Tube
Other types of Tricep Extension: Free Weight Machine Stability Ball
Secure tube up high on a horizontal pole or close as assist strap in the top of a doorway. Hold handles with palms facing down. Keep your feet together and knees slightly bent.
Pull your shoulders back then bring your elbows under your shoulders. Push your hands down until your elbows are straight, squeezing your triceps like a fist, then return your elbows to a 90 degree bend.
TIP: Keep your knees slightly bent in order to maintain neutral spine. To make this exercise more difficult, pause at the bottom and squeeze your triceps for 2-5 seconds.
Variations for Tricep Extension
This is one of the best posture promoters to help get rid of slouched posture.
This variation is more versatile because you can do it no matter what height your fixture is for securing your tube.
If you do not have a place to secure the tube, this is a good option. It strengthens the stability muscles in your arms and shoulders.
If you have an assist strap or a high fixture where you can secure the tube, this is a great exercise for the whole triceps. It gives your back more of a rest than other triceps exercises since you are not bending forward.
