Barbell Incline Triceps Extension

Barbell Lying Triceps Extension


Utility: Basic
Mechanics: Isolated
Force: Push



Lie on slightly incline bench with narrow overhand grip on barbell. Position barbell over shoulders with arms extended.


Lower bar by bending elbows. As bar nears head, move elbows slightly back just enough to allow bar to clear around curvature of head. Extend arms. As bar clears head, reposition elbows to their former position until arms are fully extended. Repeat.


With arms fully extended, bar can be brought back over shoulders. Shoulders can be internally rotated between repetitions as needed to allow for relative release of tension in muscles. Either straight barbell or EZ barbell can be used.
