The high/low tricep extension benefits any type of swinging motion. For example, a backhand in tennis, or the backswing of a golfer.
Keep your visual gaze forward and be sure to engage your properly before beginning this exercise. In addition, be sure that your form in the squat is correct.
How to Do:
1. This movement starts off with the pulley located on the lowest setting.
2. When you perform this movement, the pulley will be to the left or to the right of you.
3. To start this movement, you need to get into a squat position. Knees slightly bent, butt back, lower back straight (not curved), and head in a neutral position looking straight ahead.
4. You will then grab the cable with the opposite hand so that the cable comes across your body during the exercise.
5. Grabbing the cable with your palm facing you, pull away, twist your body, and simultaneously come up from the squat position until you are facing away from the pulley. Think of it as a diagonal line. The cable starts at 7 o’clock and finishes at 1 o’clock. To finish the motion, come back from the top and reverse the motion, back to where you started. This is one repetition.
6. To work the opposite arm, face the opposite direction and use the other arm while also twisting in the opposite direction.
