3 Best TRX Tricep Exercises
This is the first of our TRX Suspension Training Series and we're diving right into it. The triceps are one of those exercises you either love or you hate. “The Push complex”. These exercises could take you 5 minutes or they could take you 20 minutes. Depending on your repetitions, sets and speed of course. Go at your own pace. try to get through 10 repetitions back to back. This is what we call HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) at it's finest. As well, as always this video comes from our youtube channel where we release a new fitness based video every Friday. The videos are there to help you follow along with the exercise. Step by step.
So lets get in to the workout. Like I mentioned before, go at your own pace. Thomas is showing you how to do it, I know he makes it look easy. These exercises are designed to be easier. Part 2 is where we dive into more advanced exercises.
- TRX Overhead Tricep: Make sure that the straps are the same distance. If the straps are further distance from the anchor obviously it's going to be harder then if they were closer. Feet firmly placed and depending on the angle that you are, the harder this exercise will be. **Please note if you are a beginner make sure that the angle to which you are to the straps is slight. Increase or decrease at your desired resistance.
- TRX Tricep Dips: Feet firmly planted. Start with your hands at your sides but in the loops. *During this exercise your wanting your biceps to stay close to your body in the downward direction. Only allowing your forearms to move. When you reach full forearm extension, push back so your entire arm is perpendicular to the floor.
- Reverse Resistance with a Rubber Band: It looks easy. It's pretty straight forward. Go as fast as you can. Feet planted. one foot forward, one foot back with your core engaged.
These 3 exercises done back to back will make sure your triceps are swollen and burning. If you can do more, great. But it's not needed. Just increase the resistance.
