Tricep pushdown – rope attachment

The Move:
Triceps Pushdown – Rope Attachment

Why: This is a strength, cable machine isolation movement for triceps to help target and strengthen.

How: Attach rope to a high pulley. Grab with a neutral grip, palms facing one another. Standing up with torso straight and very small inclination forward, bring your arms up to 90 degrees. This is your starting position.

Using the tricep, bring the rope down. At the end of the movement the arms are fully extended.

Nail it: The upper arms should always remain stationary next to your torso and only your forearms should move. Exhale as you perform this movement.
Keep your core engaged through the entire exercise as well as shoulders down and back away from your neck.

Cable One-Arm Triceps Extension

 

The Move: Cable One-Arm Triceps Extension

Why: Isolating the triceps one arm at a time with cable extensions helps concentrate on the triceps muscle and ensures continuous muscle tension throughout entire exercise.

How: With your right hand, grab a single handle attached to the high cable pulley. Stand directly in front of weight stack. Now pull the weight down so that your upper arm and elbow are locked into the side of your body. Your upper arm and forearm should form an acute angle (less than 90 degrees). You can keep the other arm by the waist and can have one foot in front of the other for better balance. This will be your starting position. As you contract the triceps, move the single handle attachment down to your side until your arm is straight. Breathe out as you perform this movement. Squeeze the triceps and hold in this contracted position. Slowly return handle to starting position.

Nail it: You can also use exercise bands to perform this movement. To execute this move properly, only your forearms should move. Your upper arms should remain stationary at all times.
