Skull crushers are arguably the best exercise for growing and strengthening your triceps, along side Dumbbells - Seated French Press.
Using an incline bench is my favorite variation for Skull Crushers, but can also be performed on decline and flat bench press.
Feet planted for stability.
Shoulder blades squeezed before laying back on bench for further stability.
Core tight, arms locked from shoulder to elbow.
Bring the curl bar down right above your head for full extension of the triceps.
Fire into flexion holding proper form.
Repeat until failure of strength or proper form.
Strengthening your triceps will result in a stronger bench press and shoulder press because of the triceps synergistic efforts when doing any exercise that involves pressing with your upper body.
