One Arm Overhead Triceps Extension With Resistance Bands

Exercise / Triceps


One arm overhead triceps extension with resistance bands is a great exercise for those who want to build their triceps and improve their overhead pressing technique. This is an excellent exercise that will help you increase strength in your triceps, build muscle, and help you build a powerful shoulder. That’s great news, because not only are your triceps responsible for the motion of your arm, but they are critical muscles for getting your arms to do things like pull things, bend the elbows, and move your hands—like typing on a keyboard or playing a basketball.


How to perform the exercise


  • Anchor: Not required.
  • Bands: Attach each end of the band to a handle.

Body Position:

  • Place yourself in the centre of the band.
  • With your active arm, grab the handle and bring it behind your head.
  • Perpendicular to the floor, your upper arm should be.
  • Maintain a straight head, a straight back, and a taut stomach.


  • Raise the handle straight above your head, until your arm is almost totally straight.

Exercise Tips

  • Try to keep your elbow pointed up during the entire range of motion.
