Tricep Exercises At Home - 3 Tricep Exercises You Can Do Without Going To The Gym

Building muscle and getting ripped takes serious time, effort, and dedication. Unfortunately, many people are willing to put in the effort and dedication but simply don't have the time to hit the gym on a regular basis. If you're one of those people then you will be pleased to know that it's entirely possibly to build muscle without ever leaving your home. This can be accomplished by utilizing your household furniture and other household items.

In this article we're going to take a look at 3 tricep exercises you can do at home that will help you develop truly massive triceps.

Exercise 1 - Close Grip Push Ups - This exercise is very similar to the close grip bench press exercise that you may have done at the gym before. The idea here is essentially the same only you won't be using a bench press.

To begin, assume the basic pushup position that you are surely familiar with except with this pushup you will want to position your hands just a few inches apart from each other. After you have assumed the proper position, slowly lower yourself until you're right about to touch the ground and then lift yourself back up again.

Your goal here should be to do at least 20 reps. This may not be realistic at first but the more of these you do the easier they will become and the bigger your triceps will get

Exercise 2 - Tricep Dips - In order to do this exercise you will first need to find two strong surfaces like two couches or two chairs and position yourself between them. If you are using chairs, make sure they are sturdy enough to hold your body weight.

To begin, places your hands on each of the surfaces and lift yourself into the air with your legs bent behind you. Once you are in the air, lower yourself until your knees almost touch the ground and then lift yourself back up again. As with the close grip push ups your goal should be to do 20 reps although starting off you may find that you are only able to do 4 or 5 reps.

Exercise 3 - Lying Tricep Extensions - Of the three exercises presented here this is definitely my favorite because it totally isolates your triceps.

To begin, find book bag or some kind of back pack and place some weights in it (like books) and then put the pack on. Next, lay yourself down on the ground or some other flat surface like a couch and grab your backpack with both of your hands making sure that your hands are six inches apart from each other at all times.

Then place the weighted back pack right above your head with your arms positioned straight in front of you and move the weight behind your head with your arms held straight in front of you the entire time. As you do this, lower the weight until it is almost touching the top of your head. Once you've done this, raise the weight slowly back to your original starting position and repeat. As with the other two exercises here your goal should be 20 reps.
