The full name for your triceps muscle is Triceps Brachii. It is the muscle at the back of your arms, and its main job is to straighten your arms.

Your triceps is a pretty sturdy muscle. But when it's tight or injured, you'll definitely feel the pain. We use our triceps more than we think, even for everyday activities.

It's really important to stretch the triceps, and make sure it's ready for action. Make sure your muscles are warm before you stretch in your warm up, by doing pulse raising exercises.

Don't forget to stretch your triceps in your cool down. It's essential to maintain flexibility and to help your muscles recover from your workout.

These stretches should be held for at least 10 seconds. Take it to where you feel mild discomfort, but no pain. Make sure you don't overstretch.
