The partner resisted triceps exercise (elbow extension) involves a partner providing resistance as the athlete tries to straighten the elbow. This is great for the early stages of triceps strengthening.
- The athlete lies on their back with the upper arm support and the elbow bent.
- The therapist applied gentle pressure to the back of the wrist as the athlete tries to extend the elbow.
- This can be performed as an isometric exercise - with no movement for early stage strengthening, or a resisted exercise, as shown.
