How To Perform Exercise

The triceps pushdown v-bar exercise uses the v-shaped bar to target the tricep muscle and build bigger arms.

Steps :

1.) Start off standing in front of a cable machine and attaching a v-bar attachment to a high pulley.

2.) Grab onto the v-bar with an overhand (palms facing down) grip, keeping your abs drawn in tightly and back straight as this will be your starting position.

3.) Making sure that you keep your elbows in at your sides and push the bar straight down towards your thighs, until you feel a stretch in your tricep muscle.

4.) Hold this position for a count, isolating the tricep and then return back to the start.

5.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) You are able to place one foot in front of the other for a better stance.
