Purpose of Exercise:
TO DEVELOP THE FULL SWEEP OF THE TRICEPS.

Doing this movement gives your triceps a full look to complement the biceps when doing a double biceps pose. Performing Triceps Presses standing instead of seated changes the angle at which the triceps are forced to work and, in addition, allows you to do a cheating movement and thus to use more weight. This exercise can also be done with a cable and rope through a floor-level pulley, which hits the outer arm of the triceps.

Execution:
Grip a straight or E-Z curl bar with an overhand grip, hands about 10 inches apart. Stand upright and hold the bar extended straight overhead.

Keeping your elbows stationary and close to your head, lower the weight down behind your head as far as possible.

Press it back up to the starting position through a semicircular arc.
