    Skull crushers done on incline?

    Ive been doing skull crushers on an incline... Is it more effective if I do it flat?

    Shouldn't make a difference as long as you have a full ROM.

    Incline, decline, and flat are all slightly different, but all just as good. If you get bored, just switch it every 3-6 weeks or something.

    That's good to know. I like decline because I can just reach back and grab the bar from behind me when I start the set.

    Decline seems to be favored as a better feel by many.

    I do my two hand/one dumbell extensions on a 60 degree incline or so, I was playing around with angles until my elbows felt more comfortable and that's what worked the best for me and kept things pain free, and that's the only reason I do them on that incline.
