Side Triceps Press

PURPOSE
» Strengthen the arms, lats, triceps, core and postural muscles.

STARTING POSITION
Stand sideways under or just in front of the anchor. Adjust the handle to hand level. Hold the handle with the outside hand and straighten the arm to the side, level with or just below shoulder height.

STARTING POSITION VARIATION
2 Point Suspension - Step forward of the anchor, take the handle with the outside hand and place the inside foot in a loop.

MOVEMENT SEQUENCE
Lean into the ropes and reach the arm up and out to the side. From the side lean position, perform a single arm triceps press by bending the elbow as the upper arms remain stationary. Straighten the arm and press into the handle to return.

MAKE IT EASIER
Holding both handles will make it easier. As the body leans the outside hand reaches straight out and the inside hand, with the handle, stays in front of the body. This helps guide the body and the movement.
