Each dumbbell triceps extension above the head standing triceps curls should begin with a good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop this dumbbell triceps extension above the head standing triceps curls.


Beginning Triceps Extension Above the Head

With the proper form, hold two dumbbells straight overhead. Try to keep your arms tight alongside your head during the entire exercise, which will place the most amount of tension on your triceps.


Triceps Extension Above the Head Movement

1. With your arms straight over your head, you are going to bend your arms back using your elbow until your arm forms a 90 degree angle.

2. Control the dumbbells coming down and give a slight pause when you reach the bottom of the exercise.

3. After a very brief pause, you are going to lift the weights back up to the straight position with control and strength. That is one repetition.
