Tricep Extensions in the Supine Position

Target Muscles:


How To:

  • Lie down on your back on the floor or on a bench
  • With dumbbells in each hand, place hands on either side of your head in line with your temples, elbows pointed toward the sky
  • Keeping your upper arm still, exhale and extend dumbbell up toward the sky until arms are straight…only the lower/forearm portion of your arms should move
  • Hold for a count, inhale and lower the dumbbell back to the start position keeping your upper arm still...only the lower portion of your arms move

Important: It is very important that the upper portion of your arms stays still through the entire movement. Don’t let your elbows flare out. Keep them lock in pointed toward the sky
