This is a barbell exercise which primarily targets your triceps.

How to do it:

  1. Lie on a flat bench and lift a barbell shoulder-width apart above your chest. Ensure you don’t lock your arms out. Plant your feet firmly on the ground.
  2. On an exhale, bend your elbows as you lower the barbell to the top of your head. At this point, your forearms are parallel to the floor. You should also feel the tension in your triceps.
  3. Slowly return to the starting position. Repeat to the desired number of repetitions.
