Triceps stretches are arm stretches that work the large muscles at the back of your upper arms. These muscles are used for elbow extension and to stabilize the shoulder. The triceps work with the biceps to perform most strong forearm movements.
Starting Position: Stand with feet hip-width apart and roll your shoulders down and back (depress and retract the scapulae). Reach your right arm to the ceiling keeping your shoulder down (away from your ears). Bending at the elbow, let your right hand drop to the middle of your back, palm facing your back. Reach your left hand to the ceiling and place your fingers on your right arm, just above the elbow, applying light pressure to deepen the stretch.
Hold the stretch position for 15-30 seconds for 2-4 repetitions; try to stretch a little deeper each repetition.
