how to use TRAINING STATION 100 PARALLEL BARS
TS100 Hyperextension bench exercise: triceps pumps with raised, stretched hands (2 bars)
This exercise works the pectoral muscles, the deltoid (anterior head) muscles, triceps and abdominals. This exercise is easier than the traditional movement. The lower part of the pectoral muscles is the most worked, as a priority.
Mainly, the pectoralis major, the deltoid (anterior head) muscles and triceps. Additional muscles, notably the abdominals are worked to maintain balance.
4 times 10 seconds.
Breathe in when lowering and breathe out when returning to the start position.
SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS AND TECHNIQUE
Slow and controlled execution
Start position: hands on bars, the TS100 must be shoulder width apart.
Execution: lower the chest, elbows back, to hand height keeping abdominals contracted. The elbows must remain alongside the body all the way down in order to effectively work the triceps. Return to start position.
LEVELS OF DIFFICULTY
Vary the range of movements and intensity of repetitions. Use a weight vest.
