Tricep Pressdowns - Full range tricep exercise
What makes Triceps Press downs such an effective exercise?
Also known as Lat machine Press down, triceps cable pressdowns are a great way to blast triceps and build them through full range of motion.
A super strict, elbow locked triceps exercise when done properly will blast your triceps.
This exercise is done using a overhead pulley machine, just like the one used for Lats Pulldowns.
1. Hook a small bar to the pulley and hold it with an overhand close grip. Keep your whole body steady.
2. Press the bar down as far as possible keeping your elbows locked.
3. Now release and get back to starting position
Points to remember
Just to it.
Variations of Tricep Pressdowns
1. Arm Blaster Pressdowns
This is done in the same way as Standard Tricep pressdowns but with an Arm Blaster - a special piece of equipment which fixes the elbow and forces a strict movement.
Using an underhand grip is an excellent way to add variety to this exercise.
Doing cable pressdowns with one arm at a time with a reverse grip is an excellent way to isolate each tricep muscle.
