Coach's Tips

It is a workout that contracts triceps muscles by pressing the handle of the machine down hard. It's more effective because it's heavier than when you're on a cable, so you can put a lot of load on it!

How to

Starting Position

1. Make sure to keep your elbows close to your head throughout the movement. 2. Do not use too much weight or momentum to complete the exercise. 3. Do not lock your elbows at the top of the movement. 4. Do not swing the bar around as you move.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your upper arms close to your head, slowly lower the bar until it is at shoulder level. 2. Exhale as you lower the bar. 3. Pause for a moment at the bottom of the movement. 4. Slowly raise the bar back up to the starting position while inhaling.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you raise the bar back up to the starting position. 2. Exhale as you lower the bar.


1. Sit in the tricep pushdown machine with your feet flat on the floor and your back against the back rest. 2. Grab the bar with an overhand grip, with your hands shoulder-width apart. 3. Push the bar up so that your arms are fully extended above your head.
