Beginning

Beginning Single Arm Overhead Triceps Extension

Hold a dumbbell in one hand and stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart.

Draw up your spine and make sure that your head, shoulders, hips, and knees are in line.

Draw your shoulder blades back and down and tighten your abdominals to support and protect your back and spine.

Movement

Single Arm Overhead Triceps Extension Movement

1. Raise your arm and bring the dumbbell overhead. Your elbow should be fully extended with the dumbbell directly over your shoulder.

2. Keeping your upper arms stationary next to your ear throughout the movement, bend your elbow and lower the dumbbell toward the back of your neck. Extend your elbow to bring the dumbbell to the original starting position. Continue repeating the exercise until you've completed all required repetitions before switching sides.

3. Don't let your elbows flare out to the side and make sure that your back remains strong without any arching during the exercise. You should also be careful not to lower your head to your chest. Look ahead of you, and keep your head in line with your neck.

4. Instead of doing the exercise with your feet shoulder-width apart, you can choose to take a staggered stance. Step forward with one leg, and place the foot flat on the ground. Allow the heel of the back foot to come off the ground, and place most of your weight on the forward leg. Perform the exercise.
