Hello there, my name is Jay Jones, Celebrity Peak Performance Coach and Fitness Minister. And today, we're going to give you some tips and techniques on how to do dumbbell presses for the tricep. Alright, now the triceps are extremely big part of the arm. Most people want to work the mirror muscle, the biceps. But, remember, the triceps comprise most of your arm, the three-headed monster. So, we're going to work today on utilizing the dumbbells to build your tricep with dumbbell presses. Now, I do dumbbell presses a little different than most. So, what we're going to do is we're going to move the weight and we're going to stagger our foot position. Left leg forward, right leg back. We're going to engage the cage, the core. The reason why do this because we're going to work the core simultaneously by throwing ourselves slightly off balance. Core has to tighten and toned to keep us standing upright. Then, we're going to take the dumbbell, I'm using a ten-pounder, we're going to bring it all the way up. We're going to put our bicep by our ear, like a ear muff. Elbow goes straight to the sky. And we're going to keep the bicep by the ear through the entire range of motion. And that's how we're going to engage that tricep. I'm holding it here because some people have a tendency to let that elbow flare out. That's exactly what we don't want to happen. We want you to keep that bicep right next to your ear, elbow straight up, alright. Now, that's one variation. The next variation, we want to grab the dumbbell with both hands. Same thing, leg staggered and we come up overhead, keep both biceps by the ear, both biceps and then come up. You can actually utilize heavy weights here. Alright. And the third and final tricep variation is instead of grabbing by the throat, we're going to grab it end to end, press up and again, it's going to be little harder to fight to keep those elbows in, but you're going to fight to keep those elbows in full range of motion, reaching back as deep as you can, coming up as high as you can, full range of motion. Great exercise. My name is Jay Jones, Celebrity Peak Performance and Fitness Minister and these are just a few tips and techniques on how to utilize a dumbbell for your tricep press.
