In this video, Prosupps athlete Jason Poston shows us three unique tricep variations he likes to do when he's looking to build horsehoe defined triceps.

The Muscle & Strength media team recently traveled to Texas to visit with IFBB pro & Prosupps athlete, Jason Poston.

While hanging out with Jason, we got him to show us a thing or two in the gym.

In this particular video, he shows us how to build horseshoe triceps.

These 3 tricep exercise variations are ones he likes to use himself to target his tris.

Incline Dumbbell Kickbacks

For this exercise, grab a bench and set it to an incline. Place your chest on the back of the bench and pick up the dumbbells. Assume a tricep kickback position.

When Jason performs the kickback, he likes to rotate his palms up. This makes the exercise much tougher and targets the long head of the tricep.

Perform for 4 sets of 12 reps.

Dumbbell Tricep Extension

This variation of lying dumbbell tricep extensions is one of Jason’s favorites. Grab a bench and assume a lying position. Jason makes this exercise unique by varying his palm positioning.

To perform these, keep your palm open and bring the weight down across your face. This targets the long head of the tricep once again. You can use this exercise as a finisher or a pre-exhaust movement to warm up the triceps.

Perform for 4 sets of 12 reps.

Bodyweight Skull Crusher

The last variation Jason shows us is the bodyweight skull crusher. Grab a bench and place your hands at the head of it. Keep your core tight and mimic the same motion you would use while performing a skull crusher.

Remember to breathe when doing this exercise. Perform for 4 sets of 12 reps.
