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...
- 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.
- Make sure you keep your lower back tight against the bench. Don't let it arch as you're doing the movement.
- 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!
