1. Bodyweight Skull Crushers

First, set up in a plank position with your hands together and your elbows slightly more forward than standard. Then contract your triceps and push your body off the ground and slightly backward. Return to the starting position and repeat! Note — you can complete this exercise on your knees if you need assistance. 

2. Inner Handed Push Ups

Set up in a standard push up position with your hands underneath your shoulders and your back straight. However, turn your hands inwards to really activate your triceps. Lower yourself until your forehead touches the ground and push upwards. Repeat! Note — you can complete this exercise on your knees if you need assistance. 

3. Triangle Push Up Iso Hold

Set up in the triangle push up position with index fingers and thumbs touching to form a triangle. Slowly lower towards the floor and hold it for as long as you can. If you need a break, shake out your triceps and get back at it!

4. Body Extension

With your legs extended and your body positioned on its side, place your weight on your forearm. Then, contract your right triceps to push your upper body off the ground until your arm is straight. Then, return to the starting position and repeat. After 30 seconds, switch sides. 

5. Bodyweight Tension Dips 

Sit on the floor with your knees slightly bent. Place your hands on the ground and lift your buttocks off the ground. Without moving your hips, bend your arms to dip towards the ground. Then, flex your triceps to return to the starting position. While the range of motion for this exercise is small, you will definitely feel the burn!
