Things to remember
• Always keep your elbows tucked as close to your side as possible, this helps to isolate the triceps muscles, thus making the exercise that little bit more effective.
• Make sure to really work the muscle to absolute failure. By the time you’ve actually completed this exercise, your triceps should burn ever so slightly, and your arms should feel extremely pumped.
• If you’re not used to this exercise, or do not possess the strength, ask a spotter to help you by gently helping to lift your legs as you raise yourself up.
• If you’re a more experienced lifter, you can add additional weight with this exercise by wearing a weight belt with a specially fitted chain that allows you to attach weight plates to the belt before you perform the exercise.
