Tricep Stretch by CrossFit Invictus San Diego

Tricep Stretch with Rope
Written by Calvin Sun

Tight triceps can prevent you from achieving a proper overhead position, as well as cause issues in the rack position. Use this stretch to help improve and maintain flexibility in your triceps.

- Start standing straight up and reach behind you with your right hand over and your left hand under.

- Actively reach as low as you can on your back with your right hand.

- Use your left hand to gently pull the rope down and increase the stretch felt in your tricep.

- Perform 5 cycles of 5 seconds of contraction and 10 seconds of passive stretching. Switch sides and repeat the same process.

Try incorporating this stretch into your post-workout routine.

Still not sure how to perform this stretch? Feel free to ask one of your coaches.

    Thanks Mark…. OR’s are hard to come by these days. I just didn’t want to have to be the guy who re-posted right after he didn’t proof read.
