Triceps Pushdown (Machine)

Target Muscles: Target Muscles: Triceps (Especially the outer and medial heads),  Brachioradialis Starting position: 1. Sit down at a triceps push-down machine. 2. Place your hands on the handles, palms facing downwards. 3. Bring the handles down until your elbows are at your sides and bent at  about 90°. The Movement: 1. Keeping your upper arms close to your body, press the handles down,  moving only your forearms, until your arms are fully extended. 2. Hold for a count of two; then slowly return the handles to the starting  position. Tips: • Keep your elbows fixed firmly at your sides throughout the movement. • Do not lean too far forwards. • Keep your wrists locked and your palms facing down. Variations: Parallel grip: If you hold the handles with your palms facing you, then you will work your chest a bit more than your triceps.
