Tricep Pushdowns, V Bar

Type: Arms
Tricep pushdowns isolate the tricep muscles and using a V bar works the larger lateral head of the muscle more intensely. This exercise is very easy to perform and can be done by beginners to help develop strength before moving on to more difficult exercises.
Level :  Equipment : Yes

Tricep Pushdowns, V Bar Steps:

Step 1:
Face the cable machine with feet shoulder width apart.

Step 2:
Maintain a straight back throughout the movement.

Step 3:
Cable & V bar should be adjusted to around chest height.

Step 4:
Take hold of the bar with an overhand grip.

Step 5:
Push your shoulders back, brace the abdominals and back.

Step 6:
With the upper arms tucked into the side of the chest, push down by extending the elbows to straighten the arms.

Step 7:
Pause briefly at the bottom and return to the start.

Top Tip:

  • The only movement should be in the elbows. Any other movement in the back or hips probably means the weight is too heavy.
