Sit on the bench and grip the bar about shoulder-width apart on the angled portion of the bar. Start by lifting the bar directly overhead. Keeping the weight under control, lower the bar behind your head by bending at the elbows until you feel a full stretch in your triceps. Pause briefly at the bottom and then drive the weight back up to the starting position by fulling locking out your elbows. Repeat the motion until you reach muscular failure.

Tips: Make sure to use a full range of motion on this exercise by lowering the bar until your triceps are fully stretched. Do not sacrifice your form to lift heavier weight. It might also help to have a spotter assist you on this lift by handing you the loaded bar and taking it from you when the set is complete.
