PURPOSE OF EXERCISE: To hit all three
triceps heads, especially the long head.
EXECUTION: Grasp a barbell with an
overhand grip, hands close together. (1)
Sit on a bench and raise the bar straight
up overhead, arms locked out. (2)
Keeping your elbows stationary and
close to your head, lower the weight
down in an arc behind your head until
your triceps are as stretched as possible.
Only the forearms should move in this
exercise. From this position, using only
your triceps, press the weight back up
overhead to full extension. Lock your
arms out and flex your triceps. You
might prefer doing this exercise using an
E-Z curl bar or on an incline bench.
