How To Do An Incline Dumbbell Triceps Extension | Exercise Guide

About This Move: This is a great exercise that I picked up from Mike “Titan” O’Hearn. Mike talks a lot about training around different angles, not only to fully develop a muscle (in this case, the triceps), but to also work connective tissue, which ultimately can be a limiting factor in the amount of weight you lift.

Set up a bench with a moderate incline. The idea here is to fully extend your arms at the top of the movement and exercise through a full range of motion through the elbow joint.

Key Training Tip: When you bring the dumbbells down to your chest, actually let the weights touch just briefly on your chest before starting the next rep. This forces you to start each rep from a dead stop while allowing you to train through the longest range of motion possible. Keep your upper arms locked in place.
