One of the most basic yet extremely effective home tricep exercises you can do is the weighted close-grip pushup. To add weight to this exercise, you can either put a flat object on your upper back or you can just pack a bookbag full of heavy objects and then wear it while doing pushups. Now you’re going to do these pushups a little differently to better target the triceps. To begin you’ll place your hands directly under your shoulders so that they’re exactly shoulder-width apart. Then extend your legs, come up on your toes, and get into a starting pushup position. From there lower your chest down towards the ground by bending your elbows while tracking them close to your body. Usually when we perform pushups we want our elbows to be at about 45 degree angles in relation to our bodies. But for weighted tricep pushups you want your elbows tight to your body. After slowly lowering yourself down press back up while still keeping those elbows close together. Then repeat for reps.
