Power Sled Triceps Extension

Power Sled Triceps Extension

The Power Sled Triceps Extension is a dynamic and challenging exercise that targets the triceps muscles while also engaging the shoulders and core. This exercise involves using a specifically designed power sled, which is a weighted sled with handles that can be pushed or pulled. The Power Sled Triceps Extension is a unique variation of the traditional triceps extension exercise, providing a more functional and whole-body workout. When performing the Power Sled Triceps Extension, the athlete grips the handles of the sled, ensuring a secure and sturdy stance. Then, with a controlled and powerful movement, they extend their arms straight out in front of them, effectively engaging the triceps muscles. The resistance created by the sled adds an extra challenge to the exercise, forcing the triceps to work harder and enhance their strength and definition. In addition to targeting the triceps muscles, the Power Sled Triceps Extension also benefits the shoulders by engaging the deltoids and the core by requiring stability and balance. This exercise not only develops strength but also improves muscular endurance, making it a valuable addition to any upper body or full-body strength training routine. When incorporating the Power Sled Triceps Extension into your workout regimen, it is important to start with a suitable weight on the sled and focus on maintaining proper form throughout the movement. Gradually increase the weight as you gain strength to continue challenging your triceps muscles and achieving progress. Remember to warm up adequately before performing this exercise to prevent injury and consult with a fitness professional to ensure you are using the correct technique.

Instructions

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent.
  • Grab the handles of the power sled and hold them with an overhand grip.
  • Extend your arms in front of you, keeping them parallel to the ground.
  • Keeping your elbows close to your sides, bend your elbows and lower the sled towards your body.
  • Pause for a moment, then extend your arms again to return to the starting position.
  • Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
  • Make sure to maintain proper form throughout the exercise, engage your core, and control the movement.
  • Adjust the weight on the power sled to match your fitness level and gradually increase the resistance as you progress.

Tips & Tricks
