Tricep Extension, Dumbbell, One Arm

Type: Arms
The 1 arm tricep extension is an effective exercise for developing the tricep muscles, and is performed by gripping a dumbbell with one hand, keeping the elbow stationary and extending the elbow to raise the weight. Performing the exercise whilst seated encourages good technique. This is a great isolation exercise for the triceps making each arm work independently. Below you'll find a video guide and step by step instructions that describe the correct technique for the seated dumbbell 1 arm tricep extension exercise.
Level :  Equipment : Yes

Tricep Extension, Dumbbell, One Arm Steps:

Step 1:
Take hold of one end of a dumbbell with one hand.

Step 2:
Raise it above your head by extending the arm.

Step 3:
Slowly lower the dumbbell behind your head by flexing at the elbow.

Step 4:
Pause when you feel the stretch in your triceps.

Step 5:
Press the dumbbell back up until your arm is fully extended.

Step 6:
This is one repetition.
