How To Perform Exercise

The rope triceps pushdown exercise uses a rope to target the triceps muscle for better definition and bigger arms.

Steps :

1.) Start off standing in front of a cable machine, attaching a rope to the high pulley and grabbing the attachment with an overhand (palms down) grip.

2.) Keeping your abs drawn in, back straight and elbows in at your sides, push the rope down towards your thighs.

3.) As you push down towards your thighs, split the rope apart at the bottom and isolate the tricep muscle.

4.) Hold this position for a count and return back up to the starting position.

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