What is triceps stretch?

Triceps stretch

  1. Stand or sit up straight. If you're standing, keep your feet about hip-width apart. Reach your affected arm straight up.
  2. Keeping your elbow in place, bend your arm and reach your hand down behind your back.
  3. With your other hand, apply gentle pressure to the bent elbow. You'll feel a stretch at the back of your upper arm and shoulder. Hold about 15 to 30 seconds.
  4. Repeat 2 to 4 times.
  5. It's a good idea to repeat these steps with your other arm.
