Machine Triceps Extension
Most gyms have triceps machines, they typically have an adjustable seat about the height of a regular flat bench, and there may be a back to lean against. These machines vary widely in appearance but perform basically the same movement. They’re effective because they isolate the triceps, making it harder to cheat. They also provide continuous resistance as you raise and lower the weight. Furthermore, some triceps machines may have a back rest. This is very important. You will be able to perform the machine triceps extension with much more weight on a machine that have a back rest. Back rest will give you a great amount of support.
Machine Triceps Extension Exercise Instructions
STARTING POSITION (SETUP): Sit in the machine and align the seat so that your upper arms rest comfortably on the pad and are approximately parallel with the ground. Grasp the handles of the machine with your palms facing one another.
MOVEMENT (ACTION): Keeping your torso erect and elbows in, push the handles forward and down until your arms fully straighten. Contract your triceps. Reverse the direction and return to the start position. You should feel resistance through the entire movement.
Training Tips – Key Points to Remember
- Adjust the seat so that the elbows are in line with the axis of rotation of the machine and the upper arms are fully on the pads. In other words, adjust the machine’s seat height so that your armpit is snug against the upper edge of the pad. Sit with the back firmly against the seat pad.
- Keep your upper arms in contact with the pad at all times throughout the move. Otherwise, secondary muscles will take over the exercise.
- Push the handles slowly forward until the arms are fully extended. It is very important to keep the wrists straight. Allow the handles to return slowly to the starting position. No jerking, twisting, bouncing, or rapid acceleration.
- Main muscles: triceps
- Secondary muscles: anconeus
- Antagonists: biceps, brachialis, brachioradialis
