Foam Roller Triceps Exercises to Aid Recovery

Foam roller triceps exercises might look quite awkward and uncomfortable, but we promise you will want to make these a part of your regular recovery routine in no time.

The triceps (also known as triceps brachii) is a large muscle on the back of the upper arm. It is the muscle primarily responsible for the extension of the elbow. If you are into weight training, you may work on the triceps regularly to give the arm the shape you desire, but the recovery process is just as important.

Foam rolling triceps can help relax tight muscles and increase blood flow. This is an important part of your routine as a warm up because if you don’t first loosen tight muscles, you may not be engaging the correct muscles when you’re working out. It is also equally important for a cool down and recovery after a workout as to avoid strain and injury.
