Bodyweight triceps press

The bodyweight triceps press is an arm movement that involves performing overhead presses in a face-down position on a Smith machine or other raised bar. It is a surprisingly difficult movement that hammers all three heads of the triceps and the difficulty can easily be scaled up or down by moving the bar.


  1. Effective low-rep strength work for triceps
  2. Stretches and targets all three heads of the triceps, including the long head
  3. Surprising core work
  4. Can adjust the bar height up to make it easier, or down to make it more difficult
