Work Your Triceps: Resistance Band Workouts for All


If you’re ready to jump start your fitness routine for 2017, we’ve got you covered with an eight-part video series featuring easy-to-do resistance band workouts accessible for almost all fitness levels. The best part? No gym or fancy equipment needed. In part four of our series, we’re targeting the backs of our arms — the triceps muscles.

You spoke and we listened! Our readers have asked for simple, easy-to-perform exercises that are adaptable for any exercise level and age — even for mobility issues.

These moves can be executed seated or standing, and with either a circular band or one that needs to be tied from end-to-end. If using the tied band, make the circle tighter for more resistance, looser for less.

In the fourth installment of our video series, Matt Gardner, health and wellness coordinator for Hometown Health, demonstrates exercises for strengthening your triceps muscles.


    • Hello Victor! Thank you for reading! We reached out to Matt Gardner, our resident expert for all things fitness. He noted that resistance training is necessary, but there are limitations if an individual has osteoporosis. Similarly, cardiovascular exercise is typically safe but caution should be used with hypertension/heart conditions and monitoring heart rate. Gardner highly recommends visiting your primary care provider to be cleared for exercise. For information about Renown's Health Improvement Programs, please visit In good health, Roseann
