The tate press is a free weights exercise that primarily targets the triceps and to a lesser degree also targets the chest and shoulders.

The only tate press equipment that you really need is the following: dumbbells. There are however many different tate press variations that you can try out that may require different types of tate press equipment or maye even require no equipment at all.

Watch the tate press video, learn how to do the tate press, and then be sure and browse through the tate press workouts on our workout plans page!

Tips

  1. Use slow and controlled motions, taking twice as long to lower the dumbbells as to raise them.
  2. After your set, return the dumbbells to your shoulders, then your thighs, and then resume a sitting position. This will allow you to return the dumbbells to the rack or floor without damaging you rotator cuff.
  3. As you raise and lower the dumbbells, let the plates touch each other.

Variations

  1. Work your triceps doing dumbbell tricep extentions.
  2. Work your triceps doing cable tricep extensions.
  3. Perform this exercise on the floor instead of a flat bench.

Types

  • Force Type: Push
  • Mechanics Type: Isolation

    I just learned about the tate press a few months ago and I have done it probably 6-7 times. I am seeing some great results and one thing that I really like about it is that alleviates some of the pressure on my elbows that skull crushers and some of the other more popular tricep exercises tend to cause me. Definitely give this a try!
