Forward Triceps Extension with Curl Bar

Area Targeted: Triceps

Forward Triceps Extensions provide impressive results targeting the back of your arms. This exercise is best performed with lower resistance, as too much tension may pull you towards the anchor point. However, don’t underestimate the effectiveness of this approach; combining high reps with lower resistance using bands, and the Bodylastics Curl Bar, yields remarkable outcomes.

Learn set-up, movements and points to remember below:

Set Up

Anchor: Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at chest height

Bands: Thread the band(s) through the anchor and attach each end of the band(s) to an outer ring of the bar.

Body Positioning: Stand close to the door/anchor point with your back to the anchor. Position your head and shoulders in between the bar and the anchor point. Grip the bar with both hands towards the center with palms facing forward. Stand about 3 feet from the door, with your back to the door. Stagger your legs with one leg in front. Start with your upper arms up parallel to the floor and the bar in front of your forehead.


Push the bar forward until it is right in front of your chest. Return to the starting position (controlling the resistance). Repeat.

Points To Remember

1. Try to keep your elbows in (instead of them flaring out) during the movement.
2. Keep your arms up parallel to the floor.
