To make this exercise more challenging stop half way on the way down and then slowly lower the weight back to the starting position.

Repeat 3 sets of 15

TRICEP EXTENSIONS

Step 2: Keeping your upper arms stationary with your elbows in, slowly lower the weight until the dumbbells are near your ears

Step 3: Keeping your arms stationary, use your arm muscles to bring the weight back up to the starting position.
