How To Do Dumbbell Skull Crushers

Rolling Dumbbell Skull Crushers

Purpose:

  • Increase Triceps Hypertrophy
  • Build Elbow Extension Strength

Prime Movers:

  1. Triceps (Arms)

This is a low elbow stress variation of most triceps extension movements that is best for anyone that gets elbow pain from other variations.

It is also a great variation for using heavier weight and developing the entire triceps muscle which attaches to your shoulder blade, not just your arm, so as the weight rolls back you get a stretch in the entire muscle.

How To Do Rolling Dumbbell Triceps Extensions

  • Lay on a bench while holding two dumbbells with a neutral grip, at arm’s length, over your shoulders.
  • Begin by bending your elbows until the dumbbells touch your shoulders.
  • Then push your elbows back over your head, rolling the dumbbells back, until you feel a slight stretch in your triceps.
  • Quickly reverse the motion, pulling your elbows back in place over your shoulders and extending your arms until they reach full lockout.
