How to Do Lying Tricep Extension With Dumbbell
Grab your dumbbells and lay back on the bench. Be sure that you are positioned in the middle of the bench so that you have the best leverage and so that you do not risk slipping off.
Beginning Lying Tricep Extension
Your knees should be bent with your feet on the floor. Once you are in position, you are going to hold the dumbbells straight up in the air with your palms turned towards each other.
Lying Tricep Extension Movement
1. Keeping your arms tucked in and next to your side, bend your arms at the elbows.
2. Bring the dumbbells back in a smooth and controlled motion so that the dumbbells fall next to the side of your ears.
3. Come down until your arms create a 90 degree angle, pause for about a half-second, then bring the weights back up in a slow and controlled manner.
Lying Tricep Extension Benefit
The lying tricep extension works to strengthen your triceps, sculpt your upper body, and stabilize your shoulder joint. This exercise increases the strength and range of motion of your shoulders and elbows while also improving arm flexibility.
