Genetics plays a big part in how much you can build up your triceps thickness near the elbow area, where the tendon connects to the bone, but these incline skull crusher exercises can help. See for yourself in this free video on personal fitness tips.
Hi. I'm Billy Beck III from Billy Beck III Personal Training Center here in Weston, south Florida. In this video, I'm going to answer your question, how to build your triceps near the elbow. Now, a lot of that gonna... the thickness of your triceps near your elbow is going to have a lot to do with your genetics. So, the shape of your muscle building, where the tendon actually connects. Some people's it's higher, some people's are lower. But what we can do is we can emphasize overall the biggest part of the tricep, the long end of the tricep with a specific movement. Now, like again, to reiterate, genetics play a big role in this in the shape of your muscle. But we can maximize your genetic potential by emphasizing the movement an recruit the largest par t of the tricep. So, I'm going to show you an incline, skull crusher with an easy bar. Don't make fun of my light weight. I've gotta teach at the same time. So, what you're going to do at about a 60 degree angle on the bench, you're going to lay back, you're going to take your hands and then offset them, here. If you start here, your elbows will drop and it's going to be fairly easy. And at this point, it's balance. When it's balanced, there's no tension. So, what we're going to do is move it back, the tension's on the muscle, the tricep, we're going to control it and then lock out the elbow. And again, you do not bring your hands directly over the top of your body, you just slightly offset. You're going to use that control movement, make it challenging, we want to build a muscle, six to twelve reps. I'm Billy Beck III, and that is how to build the triceps near the elbow, the best you can, anyway.
