How do you work the head of your triceps?

What tricep exercise works all 3 heads?

Diamond push-ups: This exercise emphasizes all three heads of the triceps muscle and is the most effective move for that. Kickbacks: This move also targets all three heads of the triceps, but not quite as much as the diamond push-up. This exercise is also easier, so may be more user-friendly than the push-ups.

How do you work the top part of your tricep?

Hold a barbell at your chest, hands shoulder-width apart — your palms are facing your feet. Extend your arms and raise the bar above your chest. Keep your upper arms locked and use your forearms to lower the bar toward your forehead. Carefully raise the bar back to the starting position.

What head of the tricep do dips work?
