5 Biggest Triceps Training Mistakes
Avoiding these common training errors will better isolate the triceps, prevent injury and lead to major gains in size and strength.
3. Neglecting Underhand Moves
You can’t forget about the oft-neglected medial head of the triceps. Nine times out of 10, bodybuilders forget or ignore exercises that specifically call the medial head into play. It’s the smallest of the three triceps heads, but it doesn’t mean it’s any less important to the overall look of the back of the arm. Besides that, the medial head helps stabilize the elbow joint. Anytime you do moves with a reverse grip, you automatically call upon the medial head to a greater degree. So when you do pressdowns, try a few sets with your palms facing up for a different feel and balanced approach.
