- Grasp triceps rope hanging from secured bar (chest height
or lower). Position forefeet on floor, back from bar with body
straight. Elbows can be either be completely bent or straight
during mount with upper arms somewhat perpendicular with body.
- Keeping body straight, raise body up and back up until arms
are extended. Lower body by bending elbows, allowing head to
travel between ends of rope. Repeat.
- Instead of 1 Triceps
Rope (as shown), 2 ab
slings or 2 nylon/cloth
Stirrups with long straps can also be used (see how to loop
cable stirrup onto bar) with overhand grip. Both upper and
lower body must be kept straight throughout movement. Height
of bar affects difficulty of movement. See Gravity
Vectors for greater understanding of body angle influences
resistance. Also see Suspended
Triceps Extension with Suspension Trainer.
- Resistance can be reduced by performing exercise on higher
bar with feet positioned slightly more forward.
- Resistance can be increased by lowering bar and positioning
feet further back so body is closer to horizontal.
