Reverse Cable Press downs

Here we work the triceps through a full range of motion.

Implementation: (A) Attach a short bar to an overhead cable and pulley, stand near to the bar and take hold of it with an underhand grip, hands a little less than a foot apart. Make sure that your elbows are tight in close to your body and stay still. Keep your whole body still-don't lean on the weight with your body, it takes the workload off of your triceps. (B) Now, press the bar down locking out your arms and feeling a peak contraction in the triceps. Release and let the bar come up as far as possible without moving your elbows. To shock your muscles, you can vary your grip change the kind of bar you use, how close you stand to the bar, or how wide your place your hands; or you can do a three-quarter movement, going from all the way up to three-quarters of the way down in order to work the lower triceps more directly.
