Best Tip for Building Big Triceps (WORKS INSTANTLY!)

Start building big triceps with the ATHLEAN-X System here

If you want to start building big triceps you have to stop making the compensations that we often make to get more out of your tricep muscles on every exercise. To start, the major mass of the triceps muscle comes from the long head. If you want to get big triceps, you have to make sure that you are actively engaging the long head as much as possible. Given that it is the only head of the triceps that attaches to the shoulder, you need to make sure you are adducting at the shoulder to do this.

In this video, I show you how to get bigger triceps by paying attention to the position of the upper arm during your triceps exercises. One of the most common “cheats” in a tricep exercise is to allow the upper arm to drift away from your sides during each rep. As a matter of fact, if you are not consciously trying to contract your arm against your side, there is a good chance that you are not doing it on any of your triceps exercises.

This mistake would definitely cost you however, since you will never contract your triceps as hard as you can if you were aware of this. In order to fix your triceps workouts and get more out of every exercise you do, you want to be sure that you keep your arms tucked against your side or at least held in as tight to your body as possible.

People say that the triceps is responsible for two thirds of the size of the arm. If that is the case, you must understand that the long head of the triceps is responsible for two thirds of the size of the tricep muscle.

You can apply this tip instantly to any triceps exercise by simply tucking your elbow in tighter and keeping it there throughout. Often times, when we allow our elbows to drift it’s because we are trying to recruit other muscles into play to make it easier for the tricep to do the exercise. You don’t want to do this if you are trying to build muscle mass and size on your triceps.
