Single dumbbell overhead triceps extensions

This exercise allows you to work the triceps of each arm, independently of the other.  Its an excellent way to bring up a lagging arm.

Implementation:  (A)  This is to be done seated.  With a dumbbell in one hand raise the arm upward.  You must keep the elbow as high and as far back as possible at all times (to maximize the stretch on the triceps).  In fact your elbow should be as close to the ear as possible. (B) With your palm facing forward and arm fully extended upward, lower the weight backward, using a range that results in the dumbbell touching the upper back.  When you get a full stretch, keep your elbow still and raise the weight back up. I suggest beginning with your weaker arm first.
