    Overhead dumbbell extension not increasing

    I do triceps and chest on the same day. I’ve been bulking and all my lifts have been going up steadily, increasing in either reps or weight. However I have been stuck at The same weight for overhead dumbbell extension, at a 50 lb dumbbell for the longest time. How do I improve on this exercise?? I also do weighted dips and decline skullcrushers for triceps.

    One 50 lb. DB for overhead extensions?

    Try doing single arm OV DB tricep extensions for a few weeks or so....

    Also, add cable pushdowns. They will specifically target the triceps better than weighted dips.

    Sorry, I don't have an answer to your question. But all my lifts have been going up. I increase the reps each week but keep the weight the same. I failed on OHP DP press. Couldn't get 4x16x35lbs. So I take it back a few weeks and do 4x12 and increase the reps each week. YMMV.

    What works for me is high reps, well over 40 reps, also don't go all the way down, the dumbell should only move maybe 2 or 3 inches

    Yes, partial reps is the way to go a lot of times, it still works the muscle really hard if you go to failure
    See the curtains hangin' in the window, in the evenin' on a Friday night
    A little light a-shinin' through the window, lets me know everything is alright

    Nah man I think you’re doing it the right way, the weight should move more than 2 or 3 inches. The dude couldn’t do 90lb with full ROM. It’s like someone saying they can bench 315 and then they drop the bar 2 inches and back up. Doesn’t really count.

    I agree with sunsean don't be a half repper you will eventually progress. Eventually you just gotta move up to the 55 and youll get it. please don't be one of those old guys at the gym who try to go heavier than they can for half reps and terrible form. you will progress eventually I believe in you!!!!!
