Triceps Pushdowns, Reverse Grip

This exercise is great to work your triceps. At home, we use the resistance bands instead the cable machine.

Stand facing the cable machine. Position the cable attachment at a height above your head. Facing the bar attachment, grab it with the palms facing up (supinated grip) at shoulder width.

With your feet hip-width apart, brace your abs to stabilize your spine. Keep your torso aligned and pull your shoulder blades back and down.

Exhale and straighten your elbows, pressing the handle/rope down toward the floor in a slow and controlled manner.

Continue pressing until your elbows are straight but not locked. Pause briefly.

Inhale and bend your elbows to start position. Stop the movement when the elbows begin to drift forward. Repeat.

  1. Chape,
    I know this exercise very well, probably because it as my gym. I used to not be a fan of using the rope because the way it felt against my hands, but now I don’t mind it.. although I sometimes don’t like it. lol. This is a easy exercise. – I do about 50lb with hardly a struggle and working my way up 🙂

      1. Chape,
        My elbows don’t pop either. I don’t think they have in any exercise yet, thankfully. Yes, I was doing close to 100lb in college, but shit happens, I am okay with 50lb for now. I will surely keep you updated 🙂

  2. Hello David 🙂
    I wanted to ask, would you please share some exercises that would improve one’s posture? After being hunched over my desk all day, I’ve found that my neck and shoulders are looking more curved than straight. Eeeewwww….
    Thanks & BIG HOLIDAY HUGS!
