Cable Reverse Triceps Pushdown

On a cable machine, attach either a straight bar or an EZ curl bar to the upper pulley. Rotate your palms so that they are facing up toward the ceiling. Grasp the bar (from the underside) with both hands. This is called a supinated, underhand, or reverse grip. Stand approximately 1 to 2 feet away from the pulley, facing the pulley. Stand up straight, place your feet shoulder width apart, and bend your knees slightly. Keep your feet flat on the floor. Lean forward slightly at the waist. Keep your back tight and your chest out. Keep your head and neck in line with your torso so that you are looking forward. Maintain this posture and body position throughout this exercise. Position your elbows directly at your sides and bend your arms so that the angle between your forearms and biceps is approximately 45 degrees. Keeping your elbows at your sides, pull your hands down toward the floor, straightening your arms. Breath out during this phase of the exercise. Pull your hands down until your arms are straight and hanging directly at your sides. Now, in a controlled fashion, raise your hands up, bending your arms, until your hands have returned to the starting position. Breath in during this phase of the exercise.
