Flabby Tricep Muscles? Do you have nicely defined biceps, but just can’t seem to get rid of those flabby triceps? This is a problem area for a lot of people. Not to worry, there are many tricep arm workouts that will help define and tone those tricep muscles.
What Is Your Tricep Muscle?
The tricep is the largest muscle on your arms and the primary job of your tricep muscle is to straighten your arm and extend the elbow joint. Many people believe that performing bicep curls alone will give you those huge guns that will busting out of your shirt. The truth is that you need to focus more on the tricep muscle than the biceps. There are many tricep arm workouts that you can try.
According to a men’s health fitness advisor, BJ Gaddour. Your tricep muscles are made up of more than two-thirds of your upper-arm mass. You need to build thicker tricep muscles which, will make your arms look even more defined. Your arms will have the appearance of a shotgun, rather than a pistol. Try some of these tricep arm workouts below.

This is an awesome and effective push up, a little different from the typical push up. Performing diamond push- ups will target the tricep muscles. The difference between a regular push up and a diamond push up is basically the hand position. Performing a regular push up your hands are pretty far out and a diamond push up, your hands are placed really close in to your body. Because of the position of how your hands are placed this is working a totally different area of the arms, which is your tricep muscle. This is yet another one of those awesome tricep arm workouts.
To begin this exercise. Put your hands on ground like you are going to do a regular push up. But, instead of placing your arms far apart, place your arms close into your body. Instead of putting palms open on floor, make a diamond shape with your hands placing your hands on floor right underneath you. You will feel those tricep muscles working hard. Do as many as you can in sets.
