The triceps may not be the first thing you think about when it comes to building overall strength but there is no doubt that they are important. In fact, the triceps are even more important for overall arm strength than the biceps. Triceps are bigger, stronger and much more important than your biceps, a relatively useless muscle, and rather than neglect them as most people do, you should work on them twice as much as your biceps if strength is your goal. Here are some of the best tricep exercises to do just that.
The first triceps exercise that we’re going to discuss is dips. This is a great exercise for a couple of reasons. First, you can do it literally anywhere. You just need a chair or some solid surface with an edge. Second, it seems so simple, but it is still one of the best triceps exercises around. So, how do you do dips? The best way is on the parallel bars, but if you don’t have any handy, you can use any raised platform with an edge. Sit backwards and lower yourself as far as you can go, doing straight and even dips.
