Since you have been working out almost every day at the gym to stay in shape and get stronger, why not focus on your triceps today. If you want to flaunt your triceps you will have to work hard and workout properly to get them. In this video, fitness trainer & co-founder of K11 Fitness Academy, Kaizzad Capadia, demonstrates exercises to get those killer arms. While performing these exercises– the close grip bench press, the parallel bar dips, and the cable pushdowns can be enough to define your triceps, you can add a few other exercises to your routine. These exercises target the individual muscles of the arms to give them good definition and shape.
One of the exercises that he demonstrates is skull crushers. It is useful for strengthening, developing and toning your triceps. Though it primarily works on your triceps, it also engages the muscles of your forearms, shoulders, chest, abdomen and back. His exercise involves moving your triceps through an entire range of motion. One more exercise that he demonstrates is the overhead triceps extension. This exercise allows you to target the major muscles of the arms quickly. Your arms consist of your shoulder muscles, biceps and triceps. This activity engages all the areas of your arms to get the right size and shape. The last one that he demonstrates is the kick-back. It works on your triceps while working on your chest and shoulders. For quick results, perform two sets of 20 repetitions of each of these exercises.
Tip: It is important that you get the right amount of protein to avoid muscle loss. Include nutrient-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains to maximise the nutritional quality of your diet. It is also important that you eat 5-6 small meals a day.
