Starting position

Grasp the two parallel bars, arms outstretched along your torso and knees bent and swinging in the air (see picture).


While keeping your elbows tucked in, slowly flex them until they are at a 90° angle. Then slowly come back to the starting position and squeeze your triceps at the top. Don’t lean forward to prevent the tension from being placed on your pecs. Repeat for desired reps.
