Tricep Rope Pushdown
How to: Tricep Rope Pushdown
Primary Muscles Used:Arms, Triceps
Exercise Families:Elbow Extension
- Connect the rope 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 rope with a neutral grip (palms facing inwards) and hold the rope directly in front of your body with arms extended. Without changing the angle of your wrist, pull the rope down and separate your hands so that they are positioned on either side of your body. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Bend your elbows to allow the rope to come up towards your chest, stopping when your hands are at chest height. Ensure that your elbows remain in close contact with the sides of your body.
- Exhale. Using your triceps, extend your elbows and push the rope downwards, separating your hands to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
