Incline Triceps Extension with Barbell

This version of a triceps extension uses gravity to increase the resistance of the exercise.


  1. Grasp a barbell with a close grip (4-6 inches apart).
  2. Lie on an incline bench and hold the bar over your head.
  3. Lower your arms in a slight arc so your forearms are touching your biceps.
  4. Slowly return back to the starting position with the bar over your head.
