- Lie on bench with narrow overhand grip on barbell. Position
barbell over forehead with arms extended.
- Lower bar by bending elbows. As bar nears head, move elbows
slightly back just enough to allow bar to clear around curvature
of head. Extend arms. As bar clears head, reposition elbows to
their former position until arms are fully extended. Repeat.
- With arms fully extended, bar can be brought back over upper
chest. Shoulders can be internally rotated between repetitions
as needed to allow for relative release of tension in muscles.
Barbell can be received from the floor or from rack either situated
over abdomen or from behind head. Exercise can also be performed
with straight barbell. Movement with cambared bar as shown above
is also known as EZ Barbell or EZ Bar Lying Triceps Extension
