Here's How to Get Insanely Toned Triceps -- in 5 Minutes
Whip your flabby arms into shape with moves you can pull off while binge-watching your favorite show.
While vanity may drive our desire to firm this flabby area, it turns out there's another reason -- you know, aside from a strong desire to eliminate unsightly bingo wings -- that we should target the notoriously neglected muscle. Working out triceps can also help combat that perma-hunched shoulder look that many of us acquire from working at a computer all day or constantly looking down at our tablets and phones, says Dr. Robert Pomahac, a chiropractor, former bodybuilder and founder of Los Angeles' MaxHealth LA integrated medical center.
According to Pomahac, triceps help stabilize the upper part of your body and help pull back shoulders to keep your posture in check.
But if beautifully sculpted arms and perfect posture aren't incentive enough to tackle triceps, consider this: "As you get older, the No. 1 issue that people have -- women, specifically -- is osteoporosis and osteopenia, which is a breakdown of bone tissue," says Pomahac. "The main thing to improve bone structure density is resistance training."
And we've pretty much made it impossible for you to remain resistant to resistance training by tapping Pomahac, yoga expert Yvette Charlton and celebrity trainer Josh Holland to provide us with quick-and-easy triceps exercises that require absolutely no equipment.
