    Muscles worked: Triceps

    Grab a set of dumbbells and lie back on a incline exercise bench and place your feet flat on the floor. Extend your arms straight up from your shoulders. Rotate your hands so your palms are facing one another. Keep your hands shoulder width apart. Keeping your arms and the rest of your body still, slowly bend your elbows and lower the dumbbells to the rear of you going downward in a semicircular arc as far as you can go comfortably. Using your triceps, press the dumbbells 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 You can also do this exercise on a flat bench. It still works your triceps in the same manner, but it makes for a good change and brings variety to your workout. It can also be performed using a barbell.
    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 (BB), Lying tricep extensions (BB)
