Triceps Stretch – Overhead

  • HOW: Start in a standing position. Perform the stretch by reaching one arm overhead leading with your elbow towards the ceiling, reach down the middle of your back as far as you can. You can use your other arm to push your shoulder up and back as far as you feel comfortable with.
  • FEEL: The more you bend your elbow and the further up and back your elbow is, the greater the tricep stretch. You can adjust the angle of your arm by rotating your shoulder to feel the stretch in different parts of your triceps.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not excessively arch at your low back or bend your knees to try and reach back, focus on moving just your arm and upper body. Keep your head up and chest up as this will help with promoting and isolating the stretch.
