Increasing triceps involvement in pulling

Recommended Posts

Victor Mouclier

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone and their loved ones are safe from this f**k**g pandemic. My blessings from France.

How to increase the participation of the long head of the triceps during fundamental pulling exercices (such as pullups/chinups, rows or front lever progressions) ?

i know they're always working with the lats and shoulders to execute shoulder extension but i would like to know at wich angle they're getting optimal work as shoulder extensors.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your experience and knowledge

Every muscle exerts the maximal tension closer to the point of near-maximum elongation assuming that the motor pattern is correct. POsture affects how a muscle work, for example in the bench press if you do not extend the spine you cannot produce the maximum strength with the pec muscles.

So the right way to work on the long head of the tricep as a shoulder extensor is through bottom half chin ups  ?

If the progression you are suing for developing strength on the shoulder extension is correct you do not need to focus on isolating the long head.

i have clients with one arm pullup, 20+ seconds front lever, and more...i have never focused on this detail. you do not need it.
