Barlates: 5 Best Tricep Exercises

***5 Best Tricep Exercises is part of Linda Wooldridge‘s 5 Best Exercise Series. This review will eventually be double posted. It is available for free on YouTube (this review) but it is also part of Linda’s 5 Best Exercise Series DVD which contains 11 mini workouts. I am using the DVD version but I am also posting individual reviews of the workouts so others can also enjoy them on YouTube. The DVD review will post eventually, tho. However, Linda has also created a 5 Best Exercises playlist on YouTube that includes every one of the workouts on the DVD.***

5 Best Triceps Exercises is 8 minutes long. Equipment needed: exercise mat and light hand weights. 5 exercises; each exercise is done for one minute. I came to this workout after a very intense Katami 4×4 workout that wore me out so I am not sure how much that affected this workout, but this workout really burned my triceps out. Of course, this is Linda/Barlates, so she does an excellent job of burning muscles out without any help from anyone else. I did find the first exercise and the 3rd exercise easier than I expected it to be, but all of the others burned my triceps out–#5 especially.

  1. Side tricep dips (on side, knees bent, one hand on mat; do a push up with that arm, staying on side)
  2. Tricep dips with toe touches (tricep dips while in crab, touching toe w/ opposite hand)
  3. Modified tricep push ups (tricep push ups on knees but butt is up and you lower all the way to your forearms)
  4. Twisting tricep extensions (kickbacks but rotate wrists so palms face ceiling–this is not full range of motion, you keep arms at the high end, so lighter dumbbells are more appropriate)
  5. Straight arm squeezes (on knees, lean torso forward, arms behind back, palms facing ceiling; bring DBs together behind back so hand weights tap each other)
