The Doctors & USA Weekend: Tricep Exercises

Dr. Stork talked about ways to get triceps from jiggly to firm with three good excercises. The first way is doing a normal push up but with the hands turned in. Dr. Stork said if it is too difficult to do a push up this way, using your knees would work just as well.


A second way to strengthen the triceps is by placing a dumbbell in your hand and doing an up and down motion like you are reaching for something behind you. The third way is to sit in a chair and, while holding a dumbbell, bring your arm straight up your side while bending your elbow, as if you are grabbing something off the floor.
