The triceps add size and shape to the upper arms. The triceps are actually made up of not one muscle but three seperate 'heads'. The triceps make up two-thirds of the upper arm so exercising the triceps with the right exercises can have a dramatic effect on how your arms look.
The primary function of the tricep muscles are to extend the elbow - aiding all pushing movements and allowing us to throw a ball or push off a surface.
Below are a number of exercises which will allow you to exercise each part of your tricep muscles. Simply click on the name of an exercise to watch a free video demonstration of that exercise.
