Practicing the same amount of exercise for biceps and triceps
People practice the same amount of exercise for triceps and biceps. But to develop the triceps completely, you need to exercise more than the biceps, because the triceps are a bit more complicated muscles, which requires more pressure.
Keeping the elbows wide
The position of your elbows is very important during the triceps exercise. But people exercise the triceps while keeping the elbows wide, causing reduction of tension from the triceps muscles and as a result, your hard work goes away. Therefore, keep the elbows close and stable as much as possible, so that the triceps can get maximum stress.
Not locking the triceps
To fully activate the triceps muscles during the exercise, the triceps should be locked in the rep movement. But most people begin to rep them without locking them, which causes more pressure on the elbows and increases the chances of injury. (Also, read: Five upper body exercises that you are ignoring)
