Woohoo, it is Wednesday…Getting closer to Friday is always good! If you missed out on my posts from yesterday or Monday be sure to check them out for 2 other Medicine Ball Moves! Today’s medicine ball exercise will target our triceps. It is called the…
I don’t think a medicine ball will literally crush your skull, but just to be safe, make an effort to not actually drop it on your head, okay? Good, glad we got that out-of-the-way!
Start lying on the ground/mat/lifting bench, arms locked out perpendicular to your body.
Bend your elbows and lower the medicine ball until you are almost touching your head.
Fully straighten your arms again, that is one rep. Like the previous two moves, adjust the weight and number of reps accordingly. I typically do 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps on this one. When I use a bar instead of the medicine ball, I increase the weight and decrease the reps!
I don’t see skull crushers performed that often in the gym. Do you ever do them, either with a bar, ball, or dumbbells? If not, what is your preferred triceps exercise?
P.S. – About the “surprise” I mentioned yesterday – How does tomorrow sound for announcing it?
