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.

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.

TAG SOMEONE YOU WANT TO MOTIVATE!

It is my personal belief that any individual can become and accomplish anything if you truly believe in yourself, overcome your own fears, take a risk, and be extremely persistent until your goal/dream is meet. The reality is that most people that have a goal/dream lack some of the essential elements needing to succeed

(desire, faith, a plan, daily action, commitment, determination, learning from failure, persistence)

In my eyes, you do not need money to make money. Anyone who is completely committed to their goal will do whatever it takes to gain the necessary knowledge.

Lack of time your excuse?? Then you have the inability to prioritize and make time for your goals/dreams (You make time for whats important) These are all examples to show you that the only limitations in life are the ones we create, believe, and oppose upon ourselves. Don’t let the only thing stopping you from achieving your goals be you. Dream BIG, set goals and take action.
