Alright; what I’m going to be performing is
a triceps exercise called the skull crusher. What you want to do is you want to take a
straight bar or a easy bar but we’ll be performing this with a straight bar. Bring it all the
way down pretty much to your skull, that’s why it’s called a skull crusher and then press
it back up. It’s mainly again working out the triceps; you want to keep it, keep the
triceps at an angle and you wan to keep it also stationary; you don’t want to move the
arms too much, just pretty much from the elbows to the hand. You want to be able to make that
movement, concentrate bringing it up; flexing the triceps and then when you bring it down
you do not want to bring it down too quickly because you want to put tension on that triceps
by bringing it down with control.
And that is what we call the skull crusher.
