How To: Triceps Curl

  • Choose a weight you’re comfortable with.
  • Stand with your legs hip-width apart and knees slightly bent.
  • Hold the weight with both hands and reach it overhead.
  • Keep your arms straight.
  • ¬†Lower the weight behind you by bending your elbows.
  • Return to the starting position by straightening your arms.

Adjust the number of sets and reps depending on your current fitness levels and training goals. The weight you’re working with should be heavy enough to challenge you (last 3-4 reps should be hard to do, but not impossible). If the weight is negatively impacting your form, this means you should try a lighter weight first.
