Triceps Press Machine
The triceps press machine facilitates the isolation exercise focused on of the muscles on the back of the upper arm. This muscle, called the triceps, has three heads: the long head, the lateral head, and the medial head. The three heads work together to extend the forearm at the elbow joint.
The triceps press is a good exercise to lead off a triceps workout because it facilitates greater loads to be used in relation to some of the popular isolated triceps exercises, due to it being a compound movement, but it is also a great finisher.
