Lying triceps extensions are performed by lying flat on a bench while holding a barbell or dumbbells with both hands, then lowering the weight until it nearly touches the forehead, and pressing it back up to the starting position. This exercise can also be performed with an EZ curl bar or with a single dumbbell held with both hands. Lying triceps extensions are an effective isolation exercise for the triceps, and can be used to build strength, increase muscle size, and improve definition in the upper arms. It is important to maintain proper form when performing lying triceps extensions to avoid injury. This includes keeping the elbows close to the head throughout the movement, and avoiding locking the elbows at the top of the movement. Additionally, using a weight that is too heavy or allowing the elbows to flare out to the sides can put strain on the shoulders and increase the risk of injury.
