Toned arms

Coach's Tips

It is an effective workout to have thick, toned arms by pulling cables from above your head. Lower your upper body slightly and be careful not to spread your elbows!

How to

Starting Position

1. Keep your elbows close to your body throughout the exercise. 2. Avoid locking your elbows at the top of the movement. 3. Do not allow your body to swing or jerk during the exercise.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your elbows close to your body, extend your arms up and out in front of you. 2. Squeeze your triceps at the top of the movement. 3. Slowly return the bar back to its starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. As you extend your arms out, exhale. 2. As you return to the starting position, inhale.

Precautions

1. Attach a straight or angled bar to a cable column at shoulder height. 2. Stand in front of the cable column with your feet shoulder-width apart and your back straight. 3. Grip the bar with your palms facing up, just wider than shoulder width apart. 4. Keep your elbows close to your body and point them slightly forward. 5. Pull the bar down to your chest level.
