Exercise of the Week: Skull Crushers!

Now, most people wouldn’t want to have anything to do with an exercise that is called “skull crusher” but I promise you, they are great!
I am not a big fan of single body part exercises, but these are one of those exercises that I feel are great for the arms.

And with it being summer and the tank tops are coming out, I want to make sure I pay special attention to my arms.

Couple things you want to pay attention to while doing these…

  1. You don’t need to go heavy on the weights. Your triceps are small muscles compared to a muscle such as the quad or hamstring.
  2. Make sure you keep your lower back tight against the bench. Don’t let it arch as you’re doing the movement.
  3. Keep your elbows in. Meaning, do not let them flare out as you bring the weights towards your head or back up to starting position.

Hope you give these a try and love them as much as I do!
