How To Perform Exercise

The dumbbell lying triceps extension exercise uses gravity to help increase the resistance of the weight for better targeting and building of strong tricep muscles.

Steps :

1.) Start off lying of a flat bench with your head at one end and your feet planted firmly on the floor in the other end.

2.) Grab a dumbbell with both hands, with your palms facing up and raise it above your body, keeping your arms pointed towards the ceiling.

3.) Making sure that your upper arms and elbows are still, lower the dumbbell behind your head, feeling a stretch in your tricep muscles.

4.) Hold this position for a count then return back to the starting position.
