Barbell Skull Crusher

from Braydon Barrett

1. Lay flat on the bench with arms fully extended, slightly tilted over your face. 2. Bend your elbows to bring the bar behind your head. 3. Straighten your arms and squeeze your triceps at the top of the movement.
Helpful tips and Tricks
1. Keep your elbows pointed forward for proper engagement of the triceps. 2. Shoulders should remain stationary. DO NOT CRUSH YOUR SKULL
Why it works
Any movement that involves straightening the arm against resistance will work out the triceps.
