Band overhead triceps press

The band overhead triceps press is a dynamic arm exercise utilizing a looped exercise band. It could also be performed with an exercise band with handles. It targets the triceps muscles and can be performed for time or reps, either in traditional muscle-building rep ranges such as 12-15 reps per set, or higher rep ranges such as 30, 50, or more.


  1. Band provides more resistance as muscles get closer to lockout
  2. Pressing with a neutral or rotating grip can be more shoulder-friendly than using fixed weights
  3. Overhead position targets the long head of the triceps in addition to the medial and lateral heads
  4. Excellent accessory work for presses, or a burnout during an arm workout
