Purpose of Exercise:
TO WORK THE TRICEPS ALL THE WAY FROM THE ELBOW DOWN TO THE LATS.

Execution:
Lie along a bench, your head just off the end with knees bend and feet flat on the bench.

Take hold of a barbell (preferably an E-Z curl bar) with an overhand grip, hands about 10 inches apart.

Press the weight up until your arms are locked out.

Keeping your elbows stationary, lower the weight down toward your forehead, then press it back up to the starting position.

Warning:
Don’t press the weight straight up over your face. Instead, the weight should be back behind the top of your head, with your triceps doing the work of holding it there.

Keep control of the weight at all times in the movement to avoid banging yourself on the head with the bar. When you can’t do another rep, you can still force the triceps to keep working by repping out with some Close-Grip Extensions.
