Lee Hayward: Hello, it's Lee Hayward from LeeHayward.com. I've got a killer tricep exercise for you; it's the decline bench tricep extension. This is one of my favorite tricep exercises that works the entire tricep muscle through a full range of motion. I've noticed that since I've added this exercise as a staple to my tricep workouts, I've gained a lot more size and muscle fullness to the triceps and now the side tricep pose is actually one of my stronger poses. Before I start the exercise, I like to use some lifting chalk and chalk up my hands because this allows me to get a better grip on the barbell. You will notice here that, I actually have the barbell propped up on an exercise tip and this just makes it a little bit easier to reach. Now if you have somebody that you are training with, like a training partner whatever, you could get them to handle the barbell and just makes it a bit easier to get yourself in position to do the exercise. Now the main difference with using a decline bench instead of flat bench is that you are going to get a deeper stretch throughout the triceps in the bottom of the movement. So, due to the angle of your upper arms, you are going to place less stress on the elbow joint and actually place more stress on the tricep muscle itself. So, if you normally do your line tricep extensions on a flat bench then I suggest that you give them a try on the decline bench instead. By doing this, you're going to work the triceps through a deeper range of motion and help to stimulate more muscle growth. So, give it a try and then leave me a comment below and let me know how it works for you.
