General And Specifics

Starting Position

  • pick up an ez bar with under hand grip
  • lay down onto a weight bench or the ground
  • hold the ez bar with stretched arms vertically above your shoulders
  • do not stretch the arms fully
  • you can fix your feet at the end of the bench or on the ground

Correct Execution

  • guide the ez bar slowly towards your forehead by bending your elbows to a 90 degree angle
  • the elbows stay up
  • do not turn them outwards
  • the upper arms should remain vertically to the upper body
  • avoid a hollow-back
  • hand and forearm are in one line, this preserves the wrist
  • bring the ez bar back up again and repeat the triceps exercise
