Standing triceps press, also known as standing triceps extension, is an isolation exercise that targets the triceps muscles of the arms. To perform this exercise, start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and holding a dumbbell in both hands above your head with your arms fully extended. Slowly lower the weight behind your head while keeping your elbows stationary, then extend your arms back to the starting position, squeezing your triceps at the top of the movement. Repeat for desired reps or time, being careful not to arch your back or swing your arms. The standing triceps press is a great exercise for building strength and size in the triceps muscles, which are important for movements like pushing and pressing. It also engages the core muscles to maintain stability throughout the movement. To increase the difficulty, you can use heavier weights or perform the exercise with one arm at a time, as well as incorporating it into your upper body or full-body workout routine.
