Trainer: Ashley Steele
Lie on a bench with a barbell extended above your head. Position your hands shoulder-width apart and place your feet on the ground or bend your legs and place your feet on the edge of the bench. This is the starting position.
Bend the elbows to lower the bar toward the shoulders. Pause briefly, tighten the back of the arms to extend the elbows and move the barbell to the starting position. Pause, and repeat for the specified amount of time or repetitions.
You should feel this exercise challenging the back of the arms and triceps.
