    I have been doing this exercise with a barbell the last few weeks and I am not sure if I am hitting the muscle correctly. Does anyone have tips for doing this exercise or a variation?

    Here's a video from bodybuilding.com. It has a pretty good explanation of one way to do them...

    With a barbell, or with dumbbells?

    I did mean with a barbell, but looking at these videos it really seems that dumbells are the way to go. Or cables, I have used them before and it worked ok. I like the idea of putting my head on a bench, I usually find my head bobbing or rising after a few reps so I can see why resting the head makes sense.

    Thank you all for your help!
