Trx Tricep Exercises:
Overhead Tricep Extensions

Trx Tricep Exercises can be combined with other tricep exercises to really give your arms a great workout.

Triceps extensions on the trx can really work your triceps, but some people may find that it also places a lot of stress on the elbows.

As with any advanced exercise, it is wise to start slowly and build up your strength over time.

Changing the intensity with the trx is very easy. If you shorten the straps you will decrease the intensity, and you can also decrease the intensity by repositioning your feet so that your body is at a different angle.

The closer your body is to the floor, the more challenging this exercise is on your triceps and your elbows.

If you feel pain during this exercise then you should decrease the intensity or try a different exercise.

You can check out pictures of this exercise below.

Trx Tricep Exercises: Overhead Tricep Extension

Starting Position: Begin by grasping the trx handles. Walk yourself forwards so that your elbows are bent and your hands are just over your head. In the starting position, there should be no slack in the trx straps.

Form: While keeping your core muscles engaged, exhale and straighten your elbows over your head. Hold for a brief second and then inhale as you slowly bend your elbows and return to the starting position.

Personal Trainer Tips: Remember that this exercise can place a lot of stress on the elbows, so listen to your body. If you are a beginner, try making the straps shorter to decrease the intensity of the exercise.

As you get stronger increase the length of the straps. This will bring your body closer to the floor and increase how much of your body weigh you are lifting.


You can use the trx to work all of your upper body muscles, and since it's portable and light weight, you can use it at home or take it with you for an outdoor workout.

If your gym has the trx, ask a personal trainer to help you get it set up. Or get your own so you can get great upper body workouts on your own at home or outdoors.

Yours in Health,
