Medicine ball tricep push-ups strengthen the triceps, shoulders and chest. This exercise requires balance and core control. It is intermediate to advanced in difficulty, but beginners can modify it by keeping their knees on the floor. Begin by kneeling in front of a medicine ball with your hands on the ball. Maintaining your balance, extend legs straight behind you with toes curled under. Keep your body straight as you slowly lower yourself, bending the arms until your chest touches the ball.

SAY BYE-BYE to "bat wings," those flabby triceps women particularly hate, with good old-fashioned triceps push-ups. They can be performed modified on your knees or in the standard push-up position. For triceps push-ups, your arms are parallel to your sides and your elbows point back. As with a standard push-up, begin in the plank position and slowly lower body to floor and press straight back up. Repeat 2-3 sets of 12 to 15 reps.

Jackson tore the ACL in his left knee in the second-to-last game of last season but was able to return in time for the opener.

This is not a position of familiarity for Jerome McDougle. He is the one the Eagles coaches are excitedly singling out. He is the one feeling sorry for others. He is the one trying to take advantage of some luck. He is healthy. "It's kind of weird," McDougle said. "But I feel for those guys because I know how hard it is to go through those things, to bust your butt in the off-season and then to get injured in training camp. I know how it is. " Does he ever. Entering his sixth season with the Eagles, McDougle has missed more games than he's played at defensive end. He suffered from knee and ankle injuries, an irregular heartbeat, fractured ribs and a triceps tear.

After twice being slowed by a right triceps injury, Eagles center Jamaal Jackson made his NFL debut in Monday's 21-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Jackson was signed by the Eagles as a rookie free agent in 2003 from Delaware State. That year, he spent the regular season on the practice squad and was promoted to the 53-man roster for the playoffs but never saw any action. Jackson suffered a season-ending right triceps tear during the 2004 preseason. He then re-injured the same triceps during this preseason.

The Green Bay Packers' celebrated bookends are on the shelf. Defensive end Joe Johnson's season is over. He needs an operation to repair his left triceps muscle, which he tore in the Packers' 34-21 victory over the Chicago Bears on Monday night. "He's out," coach Mike Sherman said last night. "I'll put him on injured reserve . . . In talking to the doctors, I just know it would be difficult to come back this season. " The Packers already were thin at defensive end with starter Vonnie Holliday sidelined until November by a torn pectoral muscle, and defensive coordinator Ed Donatell said the team's personnel department was busy looking for a reinforcement.

Tennessee Titans defensive end Jevon Kearse will miss 2 to 3 weeks and possibly the Sept. 8 season opener against the Eagles with a strained triceps muscle in his left arm. Kearse hurt his left elbow during practice Tuesday morning, and the Titans gave the defensive end an MRI exam yesterday morning when his arm didn't respond to treatment. The test showed some damage to the triceps tendon. Coach Jeff Fisher said the injury should not require surgery and was "not severe. " "He has responded very well in the past when he's had some dings, so he should get back sooner than we think," Fisher said.
