Triceps exercises at home - what exercises are worth doing?

Triceps exercises at home - What is the role of the triceps?
A muscle called the triceps makes up the posterior group of the shoulder muscles, which is much larger than the common biceps muscle. The triceps shoulder muscle, as its name suggests, has a wide opening area that covers three distinct heads. The long head starts from the primary tumor of the scapula. The medial head begins on the posterior surface of the
humerus (under the groove of the radial nerve) and is partly part of the capsule of the elbow joint. In turn, the initial lateral head traction is also on the posterior surface of the humerus (however, above the groove of the radial nerve) and on the lateral muscular septum. All muscle heads terminate in a common end tendon on the posterior surface of the ulnar appendage.
To choose suitable triceps exercises at home, you need to know how the triceps works. The primary function is to straighten the forearm at the elbow joint, which is possible by engaging all the triceps muscles. In addition, the long head has the effect of straightening and rounding the arm in the shoulder joint. Home workouts with dumbbells People who
choose to exercise at home often have dumbbells, which allow for exercises that have a significant impact on triceps development. The additional load allows for greater efficiency in terms of developing muscle strength and endurance, and above all supports an increase in their mass.
