How do I isolate the tricep muscle for toning, and what workout is best for that?

Isolating Triceps

There are a number of exercises that target the triceps. Some popular ones are dumbbell or barbell overhead extensions, kickbacks, lying extensions, cable machine pressdowns, and cable extensions. Most gyms have triceps machines. Exercise bands or tubing can be used in place of dumbbells. The thing to remember about triceps is that it straightens the elbow, and you have to do that against gravity. You can choose one or two exercises and do two or three sets of each. You also use the triceps in bench presses or overhead presses, so there's no need to overdo the isolation exercises.
