Number 10. Roelly Winklaar
It will come as no shock to bodybuilding fans that Roelly Winklaar has the biggest and best triceps in bodybuilding history. Roelly’s triceps have so much mass that they take bodybuilding to a whole new level. In addition to his massive tricep hang, Roelly has huge triceps even when his arms are relaxed. And yet, he knows how to pose his triceps to perfection. Whether it’s a signature side triceps or a cross-body arm pose, Roelly has the best triceps in the business, and nobody comes close.
For a given muscle group, it’s rare that a bodybuilder is best in class from every angle—front, side, back—but that’s exactly the dominance that Roelly has achieved with his titanic triceps.
Number 9. Phil Heath
Phil Heath is one of the most accomplished bodybuilders of all time. His clinical conditioning and almost unbelievable size and symmetry give most of his opponents absolutely no chance on stage. But one body part of Phil’s that really stands out—especially in his most muscular pose—is his triceps. The conditioning and vascularity of The Gift’s triceps are on a par with Roelly’s, which is why he’s (easily) earned the number 2 spot in today’s competitive list.
Phil Heath also has a very unique pose that shows off his triceps well—the one where his arms are fully extended by his sides. Overall, there are really no criticisms that you can level at Phil Heath’s triceps. Indeed, if Roelly Winklaar had never competed, then Phil Heath would dominate the other bodybuilders with his Olympia-winning combination of symmetry, size, and striated muscle.
Number 8. Kevin Levrone
Kevin Levrone’s triceps are very similar to those of Phil Heath—they look unbelievably big in his most muscular pose. Levrone had some of the biggest triceps in the world, and they looked amazing both on stage and off stage, a feat that few bodybuilders are able to achieve. In other words, he had mountains of mass that he retained and added to (with striations galore) when he stepped on stage. His lateral head just popped out at you as if his arm was formed with real steel, and his long head was thick, full, and vascular.
It’s no wonder that Levrone had so many high placings and wins during his competitive career. He has enviable bodybuilding genetics that he used to great effect in his later Olympia and Arnold Classic comebacks.
Number 7. Lee Priest
You’ve all seen the iconic picture of Lee Priest flexing his striated triceps with bodybuilding legend Tom Platz in the background, who looks pumped up with adrenaline. In addition to having some of the biggest triceps ever, Lee Priest has some of the most detailed triceps ever, especially in the lateral head, which was completely striated.
You could make a strong case for Lee Priest being higher up on this list, but the competition is so stiff that it’s hard to pick and choose when the top 5 competitors all have huge triceps. Let’s also not forget the massive tricep sweep of Lee Priest. His biceps were phenomenal as well, but his triceps really gave his arms a lot of mass.
Number 6. Paul DeMayo
Whether he was flexing as hard as possible or whether he was just standing relaxed, Paul DeMayo had some of the biggest triceps in the world. The side tricep was his pose, one that was dominated by the sheer size of his long head. You can see in videos that DeMayo did overhead extensions for his triceps, which, in addition to his posing and incredible insertions, is certainly one reason why he had some of the world’s biggest triceps.
If more bodybuilders could learn that signature DeMayo tricep flex where they really push the long head against their lats, then contests would be even more competitive.
Number 5. Eduardo Correa
While Eduardo Correa might not have the absolute biggest tricep muscles (though they are still positively humongous), he definitely has the most iconic and shredded triceps. The Brazilian bodybuilder once showed off his borderline unbelievable triceps in a now-famous picture where you can literally see the individual striations on each of the tricep heads.
Correa has extremely eye-catching triceps, and they look like they’re forged out of solid steel—that’s how lean and defined his arms are.
