How to Do

How to Do Dumbbell Overhead Triceps Extension Standing, Tricep Curls

Your feet should be shoulder width apart. Begin the exercise by standing up nice and straight back straight, not curved, shoulders back, chest out, and head looking forward.

Each exercise 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 exercise.

Beginning

Beginning Overhead Tricep Extension

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.   

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.
