Triceps overhead extension with rope

The Move:
Triceps overhead Extension with Rope

Why: Keeping your body in proper standing alignment with core stabilisation and isolation of the overhead tricep extension is an excellent total body exercise with focus on the tricep muscles.

How: Attach a rope to a high pulley. After selecting an appropriate weight, grab rope with both hands and face away from the cable. With a slight bend in hips, lean forward slightly and engage core. Position your hands behind your head with elbows pointing straight up. Your elbows should start out flexed. This is your starting position.

To perform movement, extend through the elbow while keeping the upper arm in same position. Push your arms forward.

Squeeze your triceps at the top of the movement and slowly lower the weight back to the starting position.

Nail it: Keeping elbows in close to head while performing the movement will help with the isolation of the tricep extension. Keep your core engaged with shoulders down and back away from neck.

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.
