Lying Dumbbell Extensions triceps

Start/Finish

Midpoint

Starting Position: Lie down on a flat bench with a dumbbell in each hand, arms extended over your head, so you are looking straight up at them. Your palms should be facing each other.

The Exercise: Bend your elbows and slowly lower the dumbbells toward your shoulders, not toward your head. Your upper arms should remain stationary. Keep your elbows pointed up, not back.

This is a great triceps exercise, but it's hard at first. Keep practicing, and you'll get the hang of it.

Don't let your elbows flare out. Keep them in and pointed straight up.
