How To: Standing Triceps Stretch

  • This stretch can be performed standing or sitting.
  • If you’re standing, place your feet hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent.
  • Inhale. As you exhale, lift your right arm and bend it at the elbow, as if you want to touch your right upper back.
  • Now use your left hand to help you go deeper into the stretch: place your left hand on your right elbow and gently push down.
  • Hold for 10 seconds or longer.
  • Release and repeat on the other side.
This will help release some tension that you carry in your upper back. Also, stretching speeds up your recovery and should be done on rest days and deload weeks if you want the best results from strength training.
