Incline Barbell Triceps Extension - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Hold a barbell with both hands using an overhand (palms down) grip. Your hands should be closer than shoulder width away from each other.

Step 2

Lie on your back on an inclined bench. The bench should be 45-75 degrees from the floor.

Step 3

Raise the barbell overhead with your arms fully extended and elbows in. Your arms should be aligned with your torso. This is your starting position.

Step 4

Lower the barbell towards the back of your head in a semicircular motion as you inhale. Continue until your forearms touch your biceps. Keep your upper arms stationary as you do this. Only your forearms should move.

Step 5

Contract your triceps and slowly return to your starting position. Hold the contraction for a second.

Step 6

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
