Great posts from all, thanks!


It seems there are a few different ways to do it and a few different variations of the "extension"

As Dray said I guess it's personal preference and what works for you , with a difference that's really pretty marginal between them.

My personal preference is like what Adamite described, I prefer the more natural movement of skull crushers.

However, I get pretty bad wrist pain no matter how I do them it seems (did a thread about it last year), so I've been doing pushdowns since then.
