Instructions: How To

Tricep Stretch is a simple and effective stretch that primarily targets the triceps. By extending one arm overhead and using the opposite hand to pull the elbow behind the head, you can get a deep stretch in the tricep. This is a great addition to any workout routine to help improve flexibility and prevent injury.

  1. Stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart and bring your right arm overhead and bend your elbow so that your right hand is behind your shoulder blades.
  2. Grab your right elbow with your left hand and pull your right elbow backwards until you feel a comfortable stretch in your right triceps.
  3. Hold the stretch for 15-30 seconds and repeat with the opposite side.
