What exercise primarily works the triceps?
Push-ups primarily work the triceps and large chest muscles, but there are many more muscles involved. The term ‘push-up’ stems from a simple description of the movement being performed: the act of pushing yourself up from the ground.
How long does it take to tone triceps?
If you train your arms at least two times per week AND improve your nutrition, you can see significant improvement in your upper arm development in as little as 6 weeks. The less excess body fat you have, the quicker you will be able to tone your arms.
