How to: Skull Crusher
Primary Muscles Used:Triceps
- Holding a dumbbell in each hand, lie down on the bench and plant your feet on the floor on either side of the bench, or on the bench itself — whichever is most comfortable. Extend your arms and hold the dumbbells directly in front of your chest in a neutral grip (palms facing inwards). This is your starting position.
- Inhale. While keeping your shoulders as still as possible, bend your elbows to lower the dumbbells on either side of your head.
- Exhale. Using your triceps, extend your elbows to return to the starting position, ensuring that your shoulders, elbows and wrists remain in line with one another at all times. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
