Stretch: Stretch well before you exercise and stretch when it happens. A commonly used one is the standing triceps stretch.
Lack of ATP: After your workout, you've depleted your muscle stores of atp, which is the energy unit your body consumes. Atp is required for the muscle to relax. The cramps lessen as your body regenerates atp.
During workout my triceps lock up (cramp) I drink litres of water a day and eat bananas. How can I remedy this? My muscular fitness is also poor. Tnks
Recurring ache and twitching inside where tricep/bicep meet. Recently I got a full cramp that started there and carried to forearm. Don't normally exercise, tried recently and keep getting injured. Have twitching all over. Scared ALS.

I have a almost constant pain on the back side of my arm (crampy) in between the shoulder and tricep (x3 days). Could this be impending heart attack?
WHAT HAPPENED?: I answered this earlier. A constant pain, cramp and reproducible for 3 days is unlikely from the heart. The referred pain from the heart is usually not reproducible. A continuous pain for 3 days likely would have caused a completed heart attack with its resultant complication by then. It is disconcerting, have it evaluated, reassurance is the key.

If nonop option fail: Surgery may be indicated if attempts at nonoperative therapy have failed.
Yes: Typically surgery is used to correct the mechanical symptoms associated with snapping triceps syndrome. However, conservative treatment is an option if the patient is willing to accept the continuation of symptoms. There is no negative consequence to conservative treatment.

Muscle no/tendon yes: A muscle tear will heal without surgery within 6-8 weeks. A torn tendon needs to be surgically repaired to restore elbow extension. See a board certified orthopaedic surgeon for evaluation and treatment.
Triceps: In order to build the size of the muscle you must do resistance training. Body builders hypertrophy type 1 oxidative fibers. They do this by doing medium weight multiple reps multiple sets exercises.
