Lying Dumbbell Tricep Extension

The dumbbell skullcrusheris a triceps exercise that has been a staple of bodybuilders for decades. Don’t be alarmed by the name. Performed correctly, the dumbbells come down to the skull, not through it.


  1. Builds muscle and strength in the triceps
  2. Targets the long head specifically
  3. Safe if performed correctly, the scary name notwithstanding
