- SETUP: Climb up onto a Captain’s Chair or Dip Station and grip the handles tightly. Try to keep your chest up & shoulders back, as you would on any other exercise for good posture.
- REP: Lower your body by allowing your elbows to bend, keeping them tight to your sides as much as you can. A 90 degree angle is a good full rep. You should NEVER go lower than this, as it places the shoulders in a poor position and there are far better exercises for targeting that muscle if we want to train it. Return to the top position by pushing your hands into the handles of the machine HARD and squeezing your triceps.
- TIP: To emphasize the triceps, try to stay as upright as you can while performing these reps. The more we lean forward, the more the pecs & front delts can assist and take tension away from the triceps.
