Dumbbell One Arm Triceps Extension

Instructions

Preparation

Sit on seat with back support just below shoulder height. Position dumbbell over head with arm straight up or slightly back.

Execution

Lower dumbbell behind neck or shoulder while maintaining upper arm's vertical position throughout exercise. Extend arm until straight. Return and repeat. Continue with opposite arm.

Comments

Let dumbbell pull back arm slightly to maintain full shoulder flexion. Keep elbow in so movement does not turn into overhead press. Back support should not be so high that it interferes with dumbbell being completely lowered (i.e. full range of motion). See rear view. Exercise may be performed on bench without back support.
