Single-arm dumbbell triceps extension

The single-arm dumbbell triceps extension is a popular exercise targeting the triceps one side at a time. It targets all three heads of the triceps, but when performed with the arm overhead, it can be especially effective at building the long head of the triceps. This exercise is usually performed for moderate to high reps, at least 8-12 reps per set, as part of the upper-body or arm-focused portion of a workout.

Benefits

  1. Adds size and definition to the triceps
  2. Great way to target the long head of the triceps
  3. Can be done seated or standing
  4. Serious stretch and contraction on each arm
