    Michelle Beaumont: I am Michelle with michellefitness.

    com and Body Mind Fitness Solutions. I am here to demonstrate, how to do a total triceps work out. Before starting any work out program, make sure you consult with your physician. If you are trying to develop strengths, make sure that you use heavy weight and lower reputations. Make your movements nice and slow at a moderate pace.

    If you are going to tone and shape the muscle or you are trying to loose weight, you should go with higher repetitions and lower weight and your movements may be quicker to keep it at more of a Cardio-Pace. I am a national level fitness and figure competitor, I write for magazines and speak publically and I am here today to show you how to be the most effective in the shortest period of time with your triceps. Let s begin.

    I am demonstrating an overhead triceps extension; you want to take a weight, that s appropriate for what you are trying to do with your muscle, whether you are trying to do develop it or build strength, then you would go with a heavier weight and lower repetitions. If you are just toning and shaping the muscle and conditioning it, you would go with higher repetitions and lower weight. Let s begin. You are going to bring your elbows to the front, point them like two arrows, you want to keep your elbows in line with your shoulders.

    Your knees are bent, your feet are in hip distance apart position. Your Abs are tight and you are going to begin by just stretching and contracting the triceps. This is your triceps muscle and you can also do the single arm squeezing and you can even feel that muscle working on each side or double it out by taking both of your fingers, your thumb and your first finger and overlapping them behind you. Just for clarification, that position look like this, want a grip just like so and pull up over your head, maintain good form throughout the entire exercise and that s it.
