Transform Your Arms with These Olympic Tricep Bar Exercises

The triceps bar is kind of a cross between a dumbbell and a barbell. It's closer to dumbbell size but you grip the triceps bar with two hands like a barbell. With this Xercise4Less Tricep Bar Workout Guide you’ll get a functional arm session that pounds the triceps, but also targets other parts of your upper body. Burn calories to ash and build muscle with the following standard tricep bar exercises:

 

When using a triceps bar, make sure you practice good form and don’t rush your movements. If you’re unsure whether you’re using the Olympic tricep bars correctly, don’t hesitate to talk to our friendly Personal Trainers. Our fitness staff are always on hand to provide encouragement and technical tips for all our exercise equipment including tricep bars.

Read on for more detailed instructions on how to get the most from these upper body tricep bar exercises. 

Lying Triceps Bar Extension Exercises

Get this upper body workout session off to a great start with the Lying Triceps Bar Extension. Also known as a skull crusher, this triceps exercise is done using an Olympic bar. Begin by lying face-up on a flat weight bench, holding the triceps bar directly above your chest with your arms fully extended. Keeping your upper arms still, bend your elbows, and lower the tricep bar to within an inch of your forehead. Push the Olympic triceps bar back up in a steady motion and repeat.

Do Lying Triceps Bar Extension reps and repeat in 3 sets.

Focus on your upper body with this Overhead Olympic Triceps Bar Extension exercise.

An overhead triceps extension with Olympic bar is performed from a standing or seated position. Grasp the handles of the tricep bar and hold it straight above your head with your arms fully extended. Keep your back straight and core tight as you lower the triceps bar behind your head by bending your elbows. Steadily push the Olympic tricep bar back up and repeat. When doing this exercise, make sure to keep your elbows as close to your ears as possible.

Upper Body Workout with Tricep Bar Hammer Curls

Tricep Bar Hammer Curls really work the biceps and upper arms.

Hold the handles of the tricep bar the same way you would hold hammer handles. Begin by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold the triceps bar in front of your thighs. Keeping your back straight and core tight, bend your elbows to lift the Olympic tricep bar up toward your chest. Squeeze your biceps forcefully for a full second, slowly lower the triceps bar back down and repeat. Make sure to keep your upper arms tight to your sides throughout this triceps exercise and do not swing your hips forward for momentum.
