Seated triceps press, also known as seated triceps extension or overhead triceps extension, is an effective exercise to target and build the triceps muscles in the arms. It is performed using a dumbbell or EZ bar while seated on a bench or chair, with the weight held above the head and lowered behind the head, before being lifted back up to the starting position. This exercise not only strengthens the triceps muscles but also improves overall upper body strength and stability. However, it is important to maintain proper form throughout the exercise, such as keeping the elbows close to the head and avoiding any jerky movements or arching of the back, to avoid injury to the spine or other muscles.
