Standing Overhead Barbell Triceps Extension - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Hold a barbell with both hands using a pronated (palms facing forward) grip. Your hands should be closer than shoulder width away from each other. Position your feet so that it is about shoulder width apart.

Step 2

Stand up straight with your arms fully extended downward and holding the barbell.

Step 3

Raise the barbell overhead until your arms are fully extended and perpendicular to the floor. Keep your upper arms stationary and close to your head all throughout this exercise. This is your starting position.

Step 4

Lower the barbell towards the back of your head as you inhale. Only your forearms should move. Continue until your forearms touch your biceps.

Step 5

Pause for a moment then slowly go back to your starting position by using the triceps to raise the barbell as you exhale.

Step 6

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
