- Face high pulley and grasp revolving bar cable attachment
with overhand grip. Position one leg back and bend forward leg
with body leaning forward. Position revolving bar down in front
of face with forearms nearing vertical.
- Push cable bar downward by extending arms until elbows are
straight. Return to front of face until forearms are nearly vertical
and close to upper arm. Repeat.
- Position body close to cable to provide resistance at top
of motion. Elbows may be brought slightly closer to body so arms
are vertical at bottom of motion, either at or near the end of
full extension, or in one movement as bar is pushed downward.
This version of Cable Pushdown can be used with heavy weight
for added stability. It also allows for relatively greater use
of triceps long head, decreasing active
insufficiency since shoulder is less extended.
