- Lie on a flat bench and take your dumbbells above chest level in a neutral-grip (palms facing in). Keep a gap between the dumbbells, I like to have them about shoulder level.
- Keeping your arms straight, allow them to drift back slightly (see video) to “switch on” the triceps. The DBs should be about eye level now, with your arms still locked out. If we kept that initial chest level position (which many people do!) our triceps would get an easy ride.
- Allow the DBs to come down behind your head then press them back up by squeezing your triceps HARD.
