One-arm triceps extensions or one-arm dumbbell triceps extensions, also known as single-arm overhead extensions, is an effective strength-building exercise that focuses on the triceps muscles in the upper arms, the muscle group that makes up two-thirds of the arm's mass. The exercise requires a dumbbell or kettlebell and is performed in a standing or seated position. To perform the one-arm triceps extension, hold a dumbbell or kettlebell with one hand and raise it above the head with the elbow bent. Make sure to keep the upper arm perpendicular to the floor and the core engaged. Straighten the elbow and lower the weight behind the head until the forearm touches the biceps. Pause briefly and then slowly raise the weight back to the starting position. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions before switching to the other arm. This exercise can be done with a variety of weights depending on the individual's strength and fitness level. One-arm triceps extensions are particularly beneficial for those involved in sports that require throwing or pushing, such as basketball or football. It also helps to improve overall upper body strength and stability, helps to reduce the risk of injury, and can be incorporated into a full-body workout routine for improved muscle mass and definition.
