So don’t let this difficulty stop you from getting ripped – follow these instructions and start building yourself some beautiful muscles today!

Why it's important

The single arm tricep extension is an exercise that combines strength and flexibility, which is why it's a good idea for beginners. This can help them develop proper form and technique in preparation for more challenging exercises. If you're new to working out, don't rush into high-rep training (which places a lot of stress on your joints) before your body is ready for it. It may take some time before you're able to fully extend your arm without feeling pain in your elbow or shoulder, but keep at it and you'll see improvements as long as you don't push yourself too hard too soon.

Equipment you need

A barbell and weights. To perform a one arm tricep extension, you need a barbell, but you can use any type of weight you like. For optimal strength development and safety, use Olympic weights with collars that provide adequate support and allow quick weight changes between sets. The length of your bar is not too important so long as it is long enough to load your desired amount of weight on each side. You'll also need something called a close-grip bench or parallel grip bench press; although there are other ways to set up an incline bench for unilateral work, these are probably easiest because they're more versatile than specialty benches that only have holes for one side of the bar.

The different variations

There are three variations of arm extensions that you can try to increase your workout diversity and intensity. The first variation is simply a regular arm extension, or as we've come to know it one arm tricep extensions. To perform an arm extension, begin by grasping a dumbbell with one hand and allowing it hang at your side in a loose manner. Bend your elbow until it reaches 90 degrees. Then, extending your elbow (without moving your shoulder), raise it upward until it is parallel with your shoulder. Make sure that you don't allow gravity to pull you down on each rep or jerk yourself up; use only controlled movements and make sure that you don't swing from side-to-side as well.

Tips and advice

To be an effective exercise, whether you’re working out your triceps or any other muscle group, you need to isolate and target that particular muscle. Here are a few tips on how to do it right: make sure you are doing slow and controlled movements; squeeze your arm at every contraction; if done correctly, you should feel it in your arm only. If you feel any pain or burning sensation in your joints, stop immediately.
