EZ Bar Back Of The Head Lying Tricep Extension Instructions

  1. This exercise is a variation of the skullcrusher. Sit on the end of a flat bench width a barbell on your thighs.
  2. Grip the EZ bar on the inner grips. Bring the bar up to your chest and lay down on your back.
  3. Extend your arms straight up above your chest.
  4. Keeping your arms straight move the bar back so it is angled out past your head.
  5. Keeping your elbows fixed in place and not pointing out, slowly lower the bar until it is almost touching the top of your head or bench behind your head.
  6. Pause, and then slowly extend your arms back to the starting position.
  7. Do not lock your elbows out, and then repeat for desired reps.

Exercise Tips:

  1. Keep the rep timing slow and control the weight throughout the set.
  2. Keep the tension on your triceps by never extending your arms fully.
  3. Your elbows should be pointing down and not flare out as you move the weight.
