This exercise targets primarily the triceps, but includes some lower chest muscles.

STEP 1. While lying on a declined bench, grab the bar using an overhand grip, but hold them closer together than the normal shoulder-width apart.

STEP 2. Lift it off the uprights and hold it over your lower chest at arm’s length.

STEP 3. Slowly lower the bar to your chest, while keeping your elbows as close to your sides as possible. Pause, then push the bar up until your arms are straight.
