Cable Pressdown Overview

This is a variation of the cable extension exercise that is popularly known to build tricep muscles. The exercise engages your core, shoulders, and back which builds overall strength to improve your athletic performance.

If you want to enhance your endurance level, then this exercise ensures you build it adequately. Individuals also require isolation in order to perform this exercise properly. This is a fundamental skill that proves to be beneficial in performing many other exercises. 

How to Do It

  1. Attach the bar to the stack as high as possible.
  2. Grab the bar and hinge your hips forward a little. Keep the grip pronated i.e., facing down and hinge your hips.
  3. Extend the elbows, flex the triceps and pull the handle down till you feel your elbows locked.
  4. Slowly return back to the start position. 
  5. Repeat for the desired number of reps.

Cable Pressdown Tips

  1. Do not lock your elbows out completely. This is important if you want to maintain tension in your triceps.
  2. Your elbows should not move in front of your body as you extend towards the bottom of the movement. This would hurt your elbow joints terribly. 
  3. Your shoulder bladers should not tit as you stretch your elbows.
