Exercise of The Week: Lying Triceps Extension (4)

You Triceps Extension

1104-lying-tri-extension_0

This is the final exercise for the month before we get into our Challenge. So exciting 🙂 The picture shows a bench, but honestly you can do this exercise on a mat on your floor. So how to you do this? It is pretty easy I promise! For those who are beginners start off with 3-5 pounds and for those who are a little more advance go with 10-12 pound dumbbells.

You are going to begin but laying face-up on a bench or on your mat. Hold your pair of dumbbells above your head, arms straight and palms facing each other. You should now look like A. Next you are going to bend your elbows and lower the dumbbells until they are at the sides of your head. Make sure that you are not moving your upper arms. (It is very important that you do not move the entire arm.)  At this point you should look like B. Hold it for 5 seconds and then lift back to starting position. Pause, then lift the weights back to the starting position. That’s one rep.  See that was not so bad! Do 1-2 sets of 10-12 reps or whatever feels most comfortable. You want to push yourself but not to the point of hurting yourself. The most important thing you should do is listen to your body! See you next week with our Monthly Challenge!
