Lying Dumbbell Tricep Extension

Despite its name, this exercise doesn't just work your triceps. If you do it properly, you will also target your biceps and shoulder muscles. Follow the steps below to get the most out of this workout:


  • Start by lying back on a flat bench
  • Hold the dumbbells with your palms facing towards each other and your arms straight
  • Breathe in as you slowly lower the weights towards your ears, bending the elbows but keeping your upper arms stationary
  • Breathe out as you return to the starting position
