General And Specifics

  • do not let the weights fall to the sides while depositing to keep strain from the rotator cuff

Starting Position

  • grasp a dumbbell with each hand
  • lay on the ground or a weight bench (it can also be adjusted positively)
  • the arms are bent, so that the elbows point away from the body
  • the weights lie on your chest
  • the palms of the hands point to the feet

Correct Execution

  • stretch the arms simultaneously and almost fully
  • the upper arms do not move, so that the focus remains on the triceps
  • the arms point diagonally up then
  • hold the position for a moment
  • afterwards, bend the arms slowly and bring the weights inwards in front of your chest (do not rest the weights on the chest, go on to the next rep immediately)
  • the elbows point outwards again then

tip for the workout

  • for a better stability, you can push the weights against each other during the execution
