The triceps is the area where the arm flab resides. It’s that one spot that so many women have become self conscious about. And if you want to tighten up your arms, you have to know what exercises to do.
But there are so many conflicting opinions out there that figuring this out can be hard.
There is so much advice out there that you could become lost in the sea of information. Or even worse, you might never get started because of analysis paralysis.
So ignore the hype and read my analysis of machine triceps extensions for losing arm flab:
1. Summary: This is an excellent exercise for toning the triceps. It mainly works the long head of the triceps-the exact area where arm fat hangs from. The only thing you have to watch out for with this exercise is maintaining good from.
2. Technical jump start: Find a machine with a bar attached to a pulley. Face away from the machine. Grab the bar with an overhand grip, keep your arms behind your neck and dig into the ground with your feet. Push the bar upwards at an angle. Then return it in a controlled manner.
3. Common mistakes: Allowing the elbows to shift around. Not keeping the abs tight and back straight. Letting the head tilt forward too much. And pressing against the bar after the triceps have completely fatigued.
4. Final word: This is a top-tier exercise for directly toning the area where most women need help. The area where the jiggle lives! And remember that you can go heavy with this one and have minimal risk for injury. So make this exercise a staple in your arm toning program.
Knowing which exercises give you the biggest bang for your buck will save you lots of time and energy. And most importantly, they will keep you motivated through continual results. After all, if you are getting good results you’re more likely to stick with your program.
