How to do a Resistance Band Tricep Extension

Incorporating resistance band tricep extensions into your workouts is an amazing way to get results and build strength. Watch our video below to learn how:

There are many reasons you should incorporate these tricep extensions into your workouts. Below are just a few of our favourites: 

1) Strengthens Your Arms

The resistance band tricep extension is a unique way to build arm strength. Instead of picking up dumbbells or barbells, the band creates strength in a different way. The muscles work against the strength of the tight band rather than the weight of a dumbbell. It’s an excellent and effective way to use the band for strength!

2) Adds Variety To Your Strength Training

So often people go straight to weights when they want to build strength. But the resistance band offers a huge variety of ways to strength train. The band allows you to move in unique ranges of motion, whereas lifting weights is done in a fixed position. The band is super adaptive for all levels. If you need to work harder, you pull the band tighter or add another band. If it’s too challenging or you can’t seem to get the proper form, you loosen the band. Stand on the band with one foot and press the other end of the band with your triceps.  If you get a few tricep extension repetitions in and you’re thinking it’s too easy, simply adjust the Reslete band a little shorter and you’ll feel the change immediately. If it’s too hard, simply move your foot back loosen the band a bit. It’s that easy!

3) Resistance Bands Protect Injured or Sore Joints

Resistance band tricep extensions and other resistance band moves can keep you training muscles while trying to rehab injuries or deal with other pain. Some people are unable to perform traditional tricep work with weights or tricep dips due to weak or sore wrists. The Resistance Band Tricep Extension lets you train your triceps effectively without your wrists bearing the extra weight of the dumbbell or barbell.

Resistance Band Tricep Extensions are a strength training move. The fact that you are building muscle means you are becoming more efficient on a daily basis at burning calories. In general, an exercise will burn about 100 calories for every 10 minutes you are working. It all boils down to how hard you work. Because this move is more stationary, you wouldn’t expect to burn as many calories as a cardio move or a full body weight move. Incorporating resistance band tricep extensions into your workouts is an amazing way to get results and build strength.
