Triceps Cable Pushdowns with Rope


  • This movement is performed with a cable push down machine and the rope attachment. Be sure to select a weight by moving the pin in the hole of the weight desired in the weight stack.
  • Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and slightly bent to relieve stress from your lower back.
  • Grasp the rope as shown in the first picture. Keep your elbows close to your sides. Don't lean forward, keep straight posture. Pull the rope down, keeping your hands together.
  • At the fully extended position, pull the rope to your sides and contract the triceps muscles.
  • Slowly return to the starting position.


  • Using the rope allows you to isolate the triceps. This is a great exercise for definition in the triceps region.
