Extension of arms with dumbbells standing in an inclination
This is an isolation exercise that is used in fitness and bodybuilding to work out the triceps muscles of the shoulder (triceps).
The minus of the exercise is the load on the lower back, in contrast to the option where the extension in the slope is done with one hand with an emphasis on the bench. We recommend using this exercise as an auxiliary exercise after the basic triceps exercises.
- Take dumbbells in your hands and lean forward so that your torso is parallel (or almost parallel) to the floor.
- As you exhale, straighten your arms with dumbbells as much as possible so that your arms are in line with your torso and parallel to the floor.
- On an inhale, lower the dumbbells to the starting position. Keep the top of your arms close to your body close to your waist.
All parts of the body, except for the lower part of the arms, must remain motionless, the spine in a neutral position. Keep your chest straight, do not round or drop your shoulders, as well as your pelvis. Do not lower or take your elbows to the side. The upper part of the arms during the exercise should remain motionless. Perform a slow, controlled movement, do not use momentum and do not throw the dumbbell up.
