Triceps Pushdown (Overhead, Cable)
This isolation exercise targets your triceps and can provide volume while training your arms to help increase muscle definition. Performing this exercise on the cable machine provides a consistent resistance throughout the entire movement.
Connect the small bar attachment and set the cable pulley at the top
of the pole.
Turn to face the cable pulley. Standing a half-step away, plant both
feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart.
Place both hands on the bar with an overhand grip (palms facing
down) and hold the bar directly in front of your body with arms
extended. This is your starting position.
Inhale. Bend your elbows to allow the bar to come up towards your
chest, ensuring that your elbows remain in close contact with the
sides of your body.
Exhale. Using your triceps, extend your elbows and push the bar
downwards to return to the starting position, once again, ensuring
that your elbows remain in close contact with the sides of your body.
Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
