    Muscles worked: Triceps

    This exercise can be performed with a EZ-curl bar or a barbell. Either or works the same. Grasp the bar with a overhand grip shoulder width apart. Lie back on a incline exercise bench and place your feet flat on the floor. Extend your arms straight up from your shoulders. Keeping your arms and the rest of your body still, slowly bend your elbows and lower the bar to the rear of you going downward in a semicircular arc until the bar is level with the top of the bench. Using your triceps, press the weight back up in a semicircular arc to the starting position. Hold there for one second and contract your triceps. Repeat for the number of reps assigned.
    Note Try various grips, from one that is shoulder width apart, to one that is much narrower with your hands actually touching one another. Each grip will bring a different feel to your triceps.
    Don't let your elbows travel outward when you lower the weight. Keep them directly pointing upward to fully isolate the triceps. Don't lower the weight directly downward or upward, keep the movement in a semicircular arc throughout the entire movement.

    Alternate exercises: Incline tricep extensions (DB), lying tricep extensions (DB)
