- The primary function of the triceps is to extend the elbow, which results in straightening the arm.
- The secondary function of the triceps is fulfilled only by the long head of the muscle, which is to adduct the arm (or to bring the arm down towards the body). The triceps shares this function with the latissimus dorsi (back muscles).
