The barbell tricep extension is an effective exercise for developing the tricep muscles, and is performed by gripping a barbell with an overhand (prone) grip, positioning the barbell behind the head and extending the elbows to raise the weight. Performing the exercise whilst standing places more emphasis on the core as core strength and stability is vital for developing good technique.
