Tricep Press Down (Straight Bar)
The Triceps Pressdown is a popular exercise which has several variations depending on the various bars & ropes you use. The variation demonstrated in this video is the pressdown using the straight bar. The difference between the straight bar & the V bar or the rope is that the latter will work accentuate the longer head, while the straight bar will target more the outer head of the triceps. All pressdowns however will hit all three heads. To do the exercise, keep the elbows in to the side of the body with your shoulders back. Ensure you get a full range of motion to get a great stretch for the triceps. The movement should be 1 second on the way down squeezing the muscle as you do so & 2 seconds on the way up in a smooth, controlled motion. This exercise will help you get a great shaped arm & billow out your triceps. Don'ts - Don't lean your body in & use the shoulders & chest to get the weight down. Also ensure that your elbows stay at your side. Nick Jones - World Bodybuilding Champion & Joe Grima - IFBB Bodybuilding Champion
