– Attach a straight or V-bar attachment to the high pulley of the cable machine. – Adjust the weight to a suitable resistance for your fitness level.

Set Up:

– Stand facing the cable machine with your feet shoulder-width apart. – Hold the bar or attachment with an overhand grip, with your hands about shoulder-width apart or slightly narrower. Keep your elbows close to your body.

Stand in Position

Position yourself so that your upper arms are parallel to the ground and your elbows are at a 90-degree angle.

Position Your Body

- Keeping your upper arms stationary, extend your forearms downwards by straightening your elbows. Exhale as you push the bar down. - Fully extend your arms and feel a strong contraction in your triceps

Return to Starting Position

Slowly reverse the movement, bringing the bar back up by bending your elbows, until your forearms are parallel to the ground again. Inhale during this phase.


Repeat the movement for the desired number of repetitions.


1. Keep a neutral spine and engage your core. 2. Control the movement, emphasizing triceps contraction. 3. Avoid using shoulders; isolate the triceps. 4. Choose a suitable weight for proper form and control.
