This arm exercise will work on the muscle groups of your arm: triceps brachii. Don’t hesitate to have a look on my other article “The main muscle groups of your body” if you don’t remember where these muscles are located.

Start by ..

Choosing a rope attachement bar accessory and hook it to the cable machine.
Adjust the cable to the highest setting, closest to the ceiling. Take the rope bar with both hands, palms facing each other in neutral position. Straighten your abs.

Then..

While standing still with a straight back; with a very small inclination forward and elbows firmly closed to your sides, slowly curl the bar down to the finish position; each side of the rope to the side of your thighs.

Always make sure to maintain a proper body positioning and overall posture, with a straight back, chest out and shoulder backs. Don’t forget to lock your elbows. By following these advices you will have a correct technique in order to not hurt you.

 

If it is the first time that you are doing this exercise, I would recommend you to get used to the movements by doing Triceps Pushdown firstly with the minimum weight.
