Bodyweight Skull Crusher - Starting position
Bodyweight Skull Crusher - Muscle Under Tension
Set up & Starting position (prone lying (suspended))
Set the bar at about waist to chest height and hold it in an overhand grip about shoulder-width apart. Step your feet back to get into an incline push-up position, with your arms extended and your knees, hips, and body straight. Your shoulders should be slightly behind your hands rather than directly above them. Brace your core and pull your shoulders down and back for stability.
While keeping your shoulders and upper arms as still as possible, bend your elbows to lower your upper body down until your forehead is between your hands. Ensure that your body remains straight and rigid. Keep your hands close together and your elbows pointed down to keep emphasis on the triceps.
Without dropping your hips or losing core tension, contract your triceps hard to extend your arms and push yourself back up to the starting position. Repeat.
