The triceps muscle at the back of the arm is one of the most neglected on the human body, yet it makes up nearly three-fourths of your arm. You can be in fairly good shape, but if your triceps are soft or flabby, you immediately add the look of aging to your overall appearance. But don't worry: You can effectively firm up your triceps and recapture your youthful, fit look.
For this exercise, all you need is a sturdy chair (or bench). Position yourself with your back facing the chair. Grasp the front of the chair's seat with your hands. Your forearms should be behind your back, facing forward, and your fingers should be pointing toward your feet. Extend your legs and hips forward on the floor so that they form a 45-degree angle with the floor. Your heels should help support your lower body.
Slowly bend your elbows, lowering your torso so that your hips are within a few inches of the floor. Once you reach this lowered position, push yourself back up slowly by straightening your arms. Lower and repeat for the recommended number of repetitions.
To make the exercise more challenging, place a weight plate or light dumbbell comfortably on your lap as you do the exercise.
