Get Toned Triceps

CANDICE LEWIS, IFBB FIGURE PRO

“When it comes to triceps workouts, I focus on exercises that tone rather than build muscle mass. To help with definition of these muscles, I perform the last set of each exercise to failure.”

FAVORITE TRICEPS TONERS
1. Dip on pull-up assistance machine (3x15): “I switch up the normal triceps dip and do them on the pullup-assisted machine using the knee pad as a bench—this forces you to press down into the movement versus pressing up through your triceps.”

2. Dumbbell Skull Crusher (3x15): “I like using dumbbells because each arm has to work independently, and you have to concentrate on controlling the weights.”

3. Flat-Arm Pushup (3x to failure): “Begin in a full pushup position with hands close together, then drop to your forearms and return to a pushup position.”
