Reverse Grip Triceps Pulldown on Cable Cross Machine

Starting Position Select desired weight. Stand near right side of cable cross machine, and adjust that pulley to the highest position. Place straight T-bar attachment onto the pulley’s carabiner. Stand facing the weight stack with an underhand grip on the bar, arms bent, elbows at your sides, back straight, abs engaged and feet staggered one in front of the other. Step far enough from the weight stack so that the weight is slightly lifted off of the stack when in this start position.

Action EXHALE: Straighten at the elbows to pull the handlebar down towards the front of the thighs.

INHALE: Slowly return to the start position to complete one rep.

Special Instructions Keep upper arms perfectly still--the only movement should occur at the elbow as it bends and straightens. Make sure the wrists stay in line with the forearm.

Muscles Worked: Triceps, forearms
