7 Exercises That Target the Triceps


Tone up your triceps! Everyone wants powerful, well-defined, and sculpted arms.  Triceps make up roughly 2/3 of the muscle mass in your arms, so strengthening them should be your number one priority if you’re looking to score beautiful arms before warmer weather arrives. The Triceps Tone It Up Workout, for all fitness levels, will give you the challenge you need to earn a pair of toned and defined arms without that underarm jiggle.

Equipment Needed: One set of dumbbells of medium weight(think 8-12 lbs.). Choose the fitness level below for a customized workout. Review the videos below for demonstrations of each exercise. For optimal results, perform the Triceps Tone It Up Challenge two times weekly on non-consecutive days. This routine is meant to be a challenge, so prepare for some noodle arms when you’re through with your first workout.
