Muscles Worked in Tricep Pushdowns With Rope
Primary muscles worked:
How to Do Tricep Pushdowns With Rope
- 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.
