Alternating Decline Dumbbell Triceps Extension



Grasp set of dumbbells and sit at the high end of decline bench with the dumbbells at the top of your thighs. Secure your legs/ ankles at the padding, slowly lay back on the bench and bring up the dumbbells straight up above your chest, with your hands facing each other (neutral grip). This will be your starting position.


As you inhale start lower the dumbbell of the right arm, keeping your upper arm stationary and your elbow pointing forward until the dumbbell is right beside to your year and your triceps is completely stretched. From this position carefully change the direction of the movement and bring the dumbbell back to the starting position as you exhale and then repeat the movement with the left arm. Continue alternating in this fashion until you perform the desired amount of repetitions for both arms.
