Machine Triceps Pushdown

Stand 1.5 - 2 feet away from the cable machine. You can stagger your legs for better balance. Place your hands on the bar approximately 6-10 inches wide. You can also you an angled bar or a rope for this exercise. Keep your upper arms in close to your sides. Move only at the elbow joint. Exhale and extend your arms to a near-straight position. Slowly return the weight until your upper arms are above perpendicular to the ground. It is sometimes helpful to use a thumbless grip if you are using a straight bar. You may find that an angled bar or a rope will help to reduce any negative pressure on your wrists or elbows.
