Cable Triceps Overhead Extension

This exercise is a very good one for developing both the size and shape of the triceps muscles.

STEP 1. Position your feet in a split stance – one foot in front of the other with your feet hip-distance apart – facing away from the cable machine. Take an end of the rope in each hand and position it behind your head, with your elbows pointing upward.

STEP 2. Exhale and slowly extend your arms at the elbow while maintaining your body position – your arms should be parallel with each other and your elbows should point up.

STEP 3. Keep extending your arms until they are straight, then inhale and slowly lower your arms to return to the starting position.
