Decline EZ-Bar Skull Crushers

Lie down on a decline bench, using a close grip in order to hold an E-Z bar directly over your chest (it is most safe to have a partner hand the EZ-Bar to you while you are lying down instead of trying to kick it up yourself). Your arms should be fully locked in the starting position. Keeping your upper arms as stationary as possible, lower the bar by allowing the elbows to flex. Continue the descent until the bar is directly over your forehead. Once reaching this part of the repetition, exhale and lift the bar back up into the arms locked position by extending the elbows. Throughout the exercise, ensure that you are limiting elbow flaring as much as possible in order to maximize your tricep muscle engagement. Repeat the motion for the prescribed number of repetitions.
