Triceps Pressdown for Men
- Attach a straight bar to the high pulley of a cable station. Bend your arms and grab the bar with an overhand grip, your hands shoulder-width part. Tuck your upper arms next to your sides.
- Without moving your upper arms, push the bar down until your elbows are locked. Slowly return to the starting position.
Tip If you use too much weight in the triceps pressdown, you'll involve your back and shoulder muscles, defeating the purpose. One strategy to avoid that mistake: Imagine you're wearing tight suspenders that hold your shoulders down as you do the exercise. Can't keep them down? You need to use a lighter weight.
