Triceps lifts (Trolley Triceps lift)

This time it's weights and for this I use the pull along shopping trolley. Combined with a trip to the supermarket this is a relatively simple exercise. All I do is lift the handle of the trolley behind me while walking back home. A full trolley ranges from 10 kg to 15 kg in weight. Granted I'm not lifting all that weight as some of it is on the ground but I am walking, pulling and lifting at the same time. Win, win, win.

Ten lifts with one arm then ten lifts with the other or, if it's too much trouble counting, then one arm lifts to the next lamp-post, change arms, and one arm lifts to the next.

Here's a video of a triceps dip. Using the trolley, instead of dipping down, I pull up with the same shape of arms which should work out the triceps and biceps muscles.



  1. Theres me with shot lungs and I have weights! Good on you.

  2. Sounds like a good way to exercise the triceps and not as boring as just doing it at home with a chair.

  3. Good for you. I need to add weights to my workout routine.

    God bless.
