The Cable Tricep Extension

The Cable Tricep Extension: isolates the tricep and has a wide range of adaptations. As you can see from the picture on the right, it involves gripping the rope, keeping arms tucked in and only bending at the elbow. It is a great way to burn excess fat around the arms and improve strength.

Benefits

  • An effective way of burning body fat and tightening the back of the arms.
  • Assists in everyday pushing activities such as opening doors.
  • Stabilises the joints within the arms such as the elbow and shoulder joint.
  • Increases flexibility and range of movement.

Adaptations

Overhead French Press:  Grip the dumbbell with two hands and raise above your head. Bend at the elbows and bring it down behind your head.

Tricep Dips: Have your hands behind you on the edge of a bench or something similar that is elevated off the ground and your feet in front of you on the floor. Lower yourself down until your arms are at a right angle, then push yourself back up until your arms are fully extended.
