Alternating Lying Dumbbell Triceps Extension



Grasp set of dumbbells and sit at the end of a flat bench with the dumbbells at the top of your thighs. Then lie on the bench (with your head at the end) and bring 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.
