Tricep Pushdown With Rope

Muscles Worked

Muscles worked by triceps pushdown



  • Fasten a rope handle in the upper position of a cable pulley. Grip the rope with an overhand grip, and take one step back from the pulley.
  • Pull the rope down until your upper arms are perpendicular to the floor. This is the starting position.
  • Push the rope down until your arms are fully extended.
  • With control, let the rope up again.


Tricep pushdown is an isolation exercise for your triceps where it is easy to focus on the muscles working.

Experiment with a handle that feels good for you. Common choices are a bar or a rope.
