The triceps muscles is a larger muscle
mass than the biceps muscles, and it needs training from more angles.
Like the biceps muscles, the triceps muscles have to look good from any
view. But unlike the biceps muscles, the triceps muscles need to make
your arm look big, massive, and impressive when your arms are not flexed
The triceps muscles need to be
developed in such a way that they look good when you do a side triceps
shot, a front or rear biceps shot, or pose with your arms raised
overhead or held straight out. Imagine doing a rear lat shot and how
effective good triceps muscles can be from that angle. Or a most
muscular pose, with the triceps muscles sticking out right from the
elbow and continuing on to the rear deltoid. Or a front abdominal shot
where your hands are behind your head.
While it is possible to hide weak
biceps to some extent, weak triceps are obvious in almost any pose. When
the judges look at you standing relaxed in round one they will know
immediately if you have good triceps muscles or not.
However, just as with other body parts,
there is a difference between big triceps and good triceps muscles.
Every part of this relatively complex muscle needs to be fully
developed. When your arms hang, the triceps muscles need to be evident
all the way from the elbow to the rear deltoid. When they are flexed,
each of the heads must be fully shaped, separated, and distinct.
