Illustration And Description

The seated single dumbbell triceps extension

The seated single dumbbell triceps extension is almost the same as the barbell extension except that you are using a dumbbell. The grip is a little different for this exercise since you are using the actuall dumbbell plate as a grip.

I find this exercise to be a great finishing movement for my triceps routine. I suggest you start out with light weight in order to get a feel for this exercise.

 

 

 






Position for the seated dumbbell extension

1. Hold a single dumbbell behind your back while seated.

2. Hold the dumbbell with your upper arms as close to your ears as possible.

Execution of the seated dumbbell extension

1. Raise and lower the weight, while keeping your upper arms vertical.

2. This is very important. If the dumbbells you are using are adjustable, make sure they are securely tighten, otherwise, you may be wearing the plates for a hat.
