Beginning

Beginning Overhead Triceps Extension

1. Begin with either your right foot or left foot in front. The opposite foot will go back about 1-2 feet with about a 6-inch gap between feet; this will give you good support and keep you upright.

2. With this proper form, hold the dumbbells straight overhead.

3. Try to keep your arms tight alongside your head during the entire exercise, since this will place the most amount of tension on your triceps.

Movement

1. With your arms straight over your head, bend your arms at the elbow until they reach a 90 degree angle.

2. Control the dumbbells all the way down and pause for a few seconds when you reach the bottom of the exercise.

3. After the pause, lift the weights back up to a straight position with control and strength.

4. That is one repetition. Complete the chosen number of repetitions and then switch to the other side.
