When you read the title of this article I’m sure you’re thinking – what has she come up with next? I promise this exercise really won’t crush you in the head – its just a term to scare you away from it. This exercise is a great exercise for women to lift weights and will help you get tight, toned arms.
Just in case you’re not quite sure – your triceps are located on the back of your arm. They connect your elbow and shoulder joints and help with movement of your arm. Your triceps, along with other smaller muscles, help keep your back straight and strong. Having strong, tight triceps helps keep your joints strong and ensures limited injury to these joints as well as helping you through daily activities – such as picking up your car keys or making dinner.
Making sure you have strong, tight triceps helps get rid of that ‘flabby arm’ look that no woman likes when wearing a t-shirt, tank top or strapless dress.Â When you build your tricep muscles you help to burn the fat in the surrounding area, thus bringing out some definition and keeping your arms tight and toned. Who doesn’t want tight, toned arms?
Using the EZ Bar (or a straight barbell) works both triceps at the same time spreading the weight equally across the muscles, by isolating your triceps, and helping you build strength in your triceps.Â Make sure to watch the video below for proper form and technique to ensure you don’t ‘crush your skull’ with the skull crusher.
