Overhead Rope Extensions For Triceps

This works the triceps, and places extra stress on the outer head.

Implementation:  (A)  Begin by placing a rope extension on a high pulley or lat pull down machine.  (B)  Facing away from the rope, reach back and grasp it.  
Keep your elbows in front of you and make sure that they do not move throughout the entire exercise! I prefer to have one foot forward and one back for stability (
C)  From a fully extended position allow the weight to come back under control until you feel a complete stretch in your triceps.  In this position your palms should be facing each other.  From here extend your arms forward and as you are doing this turn your palms downward and stretch the rope apart as if you were trying to rip it in two!  Continue until you feel a complete contraction of the triceps, the finishing position!
