EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • SETUP: Lie on a flat bench, and take an EZ-bar up above your chest with arms fully extended. 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: This is a COMBO exercise. You can see we switch from performing FULL REPS to HALF REPS, working in the bottom third of the movement for those repetitions with a shortened range of motion.
