Extension barbell lying – option simulator


Special simulator facilitates the movement and makes it easier to concentrate on running long head of the triceps.

Note: given the different morphology (shoulder width, expressed valgus position of the elbows, wrists flexibility), the distance between the brushes used in more narrow, and between the elbows – wider. Using a rod with a curved neck does not disturb the joints of the wrist.
