Cable Incline Tricep Extension

  • Face away from the cable and assume SLS. Engage your abs and press the weight up and position your elbows at least shoulder height, or as high as your forehead if your flexibility allows.

  • Straighten your arms with your elbows staying still. Pause when your arms are straight, then bend your elbows back to 90 degrees keeping your elbows stationary.

  • TIP: Keep your spine in neutral alignment. This will mean that your focus is towards the floor, not on the wall in front of you.

Variations for Cable Incline Tricep Extension

  • Tricep Pushdown

    This fatigues the triceps, recruits your abdominals, and promotes proper form when practiced with proper technique.

  • Tricep Extension

    Using a cable provides consistent, constant tension during the exercise and allows you to easily adjust your weight during or between sets.

  • Rope Tricep Extension

    Using a rope as your handle allows you to strengthen your grip more than a bar does, and also allows for a little extra range of motion at the bottom of the movement.

  • Assisted Tricep Dip

    This strengthens the chest and the triceps, but should be done with a conservative range of motion to protect your shoulder.
