Instructions for the Isometric Triceps Extension

This page provides details on the Isometric Triceps Extension. This isometric exercise will build your triceps strength and is done without dumbbells. You do not need to go to the gym in order to perform this exercise because it can be done at the dojo, home or office. Stronger triceps muscles will help you with your grappling techniques and your punching power. For a related exercise, you should try the isometric bicep curl.
