How to Do Banded Tricep Pushdown
The banded tricep pushdown should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.
If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the banded tricep pushdown.
Beginning Banded Tricep Pushdown
1. Keep chest up, shoulder girdle relaxed and spine naturally curved.
2. Stand upright with feet spaced shoulder width apart or with one in front of the other (staggered). Do not lockout knees.
Banded Tricep Pushdown Movement
1. Turn elbows to sides before pushing down.
2. Reverse motion before arms are completely straight (no joint locking).
Banded Tricep Pushdown Benefits
The triceps pushdown can help to increase upper body arm size, enhance general pressing strength, and ultimately improve performance of the shoulders and chest muscles.
