Seated Overhead Dumbbell Triceps Extension

How To Do A Seated Overhead Dumbbell Triceps Extension Exercise Demonstration Video and Guide

The Seated Overhead Dumbbell Triceps Extension is a great way to isolate the triceps.

To get started:

  1. Sit upright on a flat bench with your feet firmly planted into the floor, abs contracted, back flat, while gripping the end of one dumbbell vertically with both hands, so the top of the dumbbell rests in the palms of your hands.
  2. Extend your arms to lift the dumbbell over your head.
  3. Slowly lower the dumbbell by bending your elbows and keeping your upper arms locked down.
  4. The only movement occurs at the elbow joint.
  5. Do not allow your arms to sway back and forth to create momentum to lift the weight.
  6. Once your forearms come close to or touch your biceps, extend your arms to press the dumbbell back over your head.
  7. Repeat.
