Tricep Extension (Cable)


Muscle Worked



  • Fix a tricep cable underneath your feet coming from below.
  • Stand with upper arms straight up, elbows next to your waist. 
  • Keeping your upper arms straight with elbow at a "fixed-point", lift the tricep rope upward over your head until your arms are fully extended.
  • Hold for a brief second flexing your tricep muscles.
  • Return the rope to the starting position in a slow, controlled manner, keeping your elbows at a fixed point.
  • When lifting and lowering the rope try not to sway or arch your back. 
  • Don't let your upper arms move. Keep your elbows at a "fixed-point" throughout the exercise.
