Triceps and Lying Triceps Extensions
I'm doing Lying Triceps Extensions (French Presses) holding a straight barbell overhead while lying on a bench, I keep my upper arms still and flex only at the elbows when lowering the bar to the back of my forehead. My question to you is should I keep my forearm and my wrist straight when the bar is on my head(the lower part of the movement) or should the wrists be bent at this point, creating an "L" or claw shape with the forearm and wrist? Which hit's the tri's best?
Try with dumbells on an incline bench.
Hold then in a hammer curl, elbows pointin to the ceiling, and lower dbs down to ear/delts and extend up.
For me this is the best tricep exercise I know and generally hurts my elbows after doing them, but the next day its all tricep pain... trust me!
