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.
