The Overhead Triceps Stretch is a fundamental stretch that focuses on the triceps, the muscle group situated on the posterior aspect of your upper arms. These muscles play a significant role in elbow extension and contribute to the overall strength and function of your arms.

Starting position

  1. Stand up straight with your feet hip-width apart.


  1. Raise your right arm overhead, bending it at the elbow. Your hand should reach down your back with your fingertips pointing downward, and your elbow should be pointing up toward the ceiling.
  2. Use your left hand to reach behind your back and try to grasp your right fingertips or, if possible, hold onto a towel, strap, or your shirttail to bridge the gap between your hands.
  3. Gently pull your right elbow downward with your left hand. You should feel a stretch along the back of your right arm, targeting the triceps.
  4. Hold the stretch, while taking deep breaths and focusing on relaxing into the stretch.
  5. Release the stretch and switch sides, repeating the process with your left arm.
