Please read our guidelines section before attempting any of our free weight tricep exercises.
Technique - Start by bending your knees keeping your back straight when picking up the plate weight. Grip the plate at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock. Stand up with the plate with your feet just outside shoulder width apart for stability. When you are ready to begin press the plate above your head keeping your back straight at all times. Inhale as you lower the plate down slowly behind your head not allowing your arms to hit a resting point. Exhale as you extend the plate back to the starting position keeping your upper arms straight and solid not allowing your arms to lock out before performing the next rep as this will maintain pressure on the tricep muscles and increase the overall benefits of the exercise.
