How to Rope Pushdown
Starting Position: Attach a rope attachment to the upper part of a cable machine. Hold the rope with your hands facing each other.
Form: Exhale and pull the rope down towards your waist. Hold for a brief moment and then slowly return to the starting position.
Personal Trainer Tips: Keep your shoulders in good alignment during this exercise. The tendency is for the shoulders to tip forwards as you push down.
Also keep your shoulders stationary during this exercise. Only move your elbows to isolate and focus on the triceps.
Stand up straight and keep your back in good alignment, and always move in a slow and controlled manner.
Rope Pushdown – Benefits
- The cable rope pushdown is an effective exercise that targets the triceps muscles. The cables provide a constant tension that really challenges the triceps through the entire range of motion. And the cables really help you get a good burn or pump in the back of the arms.
