Instructions: How To

Loop Band Single Arm Tricep Extension is an isolation exercise that targets your triceps. By targeting one side at a time, you prevent any compensation for strength discrepancies between sides. The use of a loop band allows for increasing tension as you progress through your range of motion.

  1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart with toes pointed slightly outward.
  2. Place the band under the midfoot area of both feet.
  3. Grip the loop with one hand and as you brace your core, bring the loop overhead.
  4. Slowly the loop behind your head by bending the elbow, this will be the starting position.
  5. Exhale and straighten the arm by pushing the band toward the ceiling or sky.
  6. Inhale and slowly return the band to starting position.

Common Mistakes

  • Varying Tension with Bands

    Resistance increases as you stretch a band. Make sure you’re using a band that allows you to move through your full range of motion. The resistance may feel too light during parts of the movement.
