Exercise Description and Instruction:

This Weight Training Exercise is a great variation of Triceps Extensions but uses a barbell and slightly different movement to isolate your triceps. It is very similar to Skull Crushers but uses a reverse grip and presses from just behind your head rather than just above your forehead.

To Perform This Exercise:

  1. Lie on a bench with your head at one end and your feet firmly on the floor.
  2. Grasp a barbell with an underhand grip so the back of your hands is facing forward.
  3. Move your arms beyond your head and keep them in a straight line.
  4. While bending only your elbows, slowly lower the bar to your chest, pause and then raise the barbell back to the starting position.
