BARBELL & BAND INCLINE SKULLCRUSHERS

BARBELL & BAND INCLINE SKULLCRUSHERS


VIDEO DEMO:


EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • SETUP: Set a bench to a 45 degree incline and run a resistance band through the bench feet then inside the barbell clips. A partner can assist you in getting the barbell, or you can do it yourself (see video). I like to use the narrow-grip of the EZ-bar, but you can use the wider grip if it feels more comfortable to you.
  • REP: Lower the bar behind your head, while keeping your elbows locked in place, don’t let them flare out. Press the bar back up and squeeze your triceps hard.
  • TIP: Notice how I don’t start the rep with the bar above my chest? Instead, move my arms back so the weight is around eye level. This forces your triceps to work much harder, as we’ve removed the portion of the rep where our chest & shoulders will help. The difficult part of this exercise is normally the bottom third, but the extra resistance provided by the band will make the top third of the rep just as hard.
