Reverse Tricep Extensions

Using either a long band, weights, short band or cables, hold equipment in "palms up" (reverse) position. Begin with bent elbows at a 90 degree angle (A) and pull down until arms are fully extended to straight position and tricep muscle(s) are engaged (B).

It is important to keep elbows tight against your sides during the entire range of motion to maximize impact. Pause for a second and then slowly release arms back to the start position.
Using the same dumbbell, stagger your stance, lean forward keeping shoulder to elbow stationary. Bring lower arm forward to a 90 degree angle, return to starting position and squeeze tricep. Do 20 repetitions. Switch sides and repeat.
