Triceps Pushdown

Triceps Pushdown

Model: Shaun Campbell, IDFA Founder & Pro Natural Bodybuilder

Target Muscle: Triceps

Preparation
Face high pulley and grasp the short straight bar cable attachment with an overhand grip. Start the exercise with the bar at chest height. Position elbows to the side.

Execution
Push bar towards the floor. Make sure to squeeze the triceps at the bottom. Full lockout. Return until bar is back at chest height. Repeat.

Comments
Step close enough to cable to provide resistance at the top of the motion. All triceps exercises are to be performed to a full lockout. Make sure the upper arm remains in the same position throughout the movement. For a greater contraction and added variety you can also try doing this exercise with a rope attachment. Chest should be high with the shoulders back during the entire movement to minimize their involvement.
