Overview: An exercise that is very to perform and is excellent for developing strength before moving on the more difficult exercises.

Execution: With elbows at your side, grab the bar with an overhand and face the machine. Inhale and straighten your arms keeping your elbows at your side. At the end of the movement hold the contraction for 2 seconds and exhale as you complete the movement and return the bar to itself original position in a control manner.

Variations:
• Using a triceps rope will target the lateral head of the triceps more intensely.
• Face away from the machine push the bar forward from over your head. This will target the long head of the triceps.
• Using and underhand grip will target the medial head.
