How to Do Barbell Lying Triceps Extensions
- Lie down on a bench which your head close to the edge. Hold a barbell with a close grip, and lift it up to straight arms over yourself.
- Lower the barbell down behind your head. Try to keep the same distance between your elbows throughout the movement.
- Reverse the motion and extend your arms again.
The lying triceps extension is a complete tricep exercise that besides extending your elbow joint also trains the triceps function to bring your upper arm down towards your midline.
