This exercise uses cables to isolate and work the triceps (muscles on the back of the arms).

Muscle group: Triceps


Place an incline bench facing away from a cable pulley.

Attach a short straight bar to the pulley and adjust the height so that your arms can extend fully.

Lie face up on the bench and grasp the bar with a narrow overhand grip.

Keeping your arms straight, slowly push the bar down towards your feet.

Pause at the bottom and then return to starting position.


Keep your elbows steady throughout this exercise.
