Skullcrushers (Exercise- how to)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_KZxkY_0cM –the demonstration video

Welcome FitFam, 

Today’s blog post will be another exercise “how to”. I am sure some of you have heard of the exercise “Skullcrusher” and if not, then today will be your lucky day because this will be the exercise I discuss with you. For starters, the skullcrusher can be considered a more advanced movement because most people who happen to demonstrate this particular exercise tend to not do it correctly (which of course can cause injury), so it is very important before doing this particular exercise, that you take the time to watch proper videos and/or ask a professional so you can reduce your chances of injury. 

 

How Do I Perform The Skullcrusher? (Using the EZ- bar)

 
  1. Use a closed grip, lift the EZ-bar with elbows in as you lie on the bench ( arms should be perpendicular to the floor) – This is the starting position
  2. Keep the upper arms stationary, lower the bar allowing the elbows to flex while inhaling. You will pause once the bar is directly over the forehead. 
  3. lift the bar back to the starting position, extending the elbow and exhaling

What Muscles are being worked on?

  • Triceps 

So hopefully this is one of those exercises that you give a go, and as always before performing any of these exercises consult with a professional if you have any prior injuries or conditions that could hinder you. Thank you for reading.

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct. I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 7+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL. My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.
