PURPOSE OF EXERCISE: To isolate the
triceps and develop the horseshoe shape
of the muscle.
This exercise is especially good for
contest or weak point training because
by using a cable you can work each arm
separately in isolation.
EXECUTION: (1) Using an overhead cable
and pulley, take hold of the handle with
a reverse grip, palm up. (2) Keeping
your elbow fixed and unmoving,
straighten your arm until it is locked out
and extended straight down. Flex the
triceps in this position for extra
contraction. Still not moving the elbow,
let your hand come up as far as possible
until the forearm approaches the biceps,
feeling a complete stretch in the triceps.
Finish your repetitions, then repeat with
the other arm.
