Reverse One-Arm Cable Tricep Extension Instructions

  1. Set up for the reverse one-arm tricep extension by attaching a single grip handle to a high pulley cable and selecting the weight you want to use on the stack.
  2. Stand facing the machine and grasp the handle with an underhand grip (palms facing up).
  3. Pull your elbow down and keep it tucked in at your side. You can use your free arm for support.
  4. Keeping your body fixed, slowly extend the arm as far as possible.
  5. Pause and squeeze the tricep. Then slowly lower the weight.
  6. Repeat this motion for desired reps, and then repeat for the right arm.

Reverse One-Arm Cable Tricep Extension Tips

  • Your elbow must remain fixed during the set. Keep your upper arm as still as possible, only allowing your forearm to move.
  • Squeeze the tricep hard at the top of the exercise to get that extra pump!
  • Keep the rep timing slow and controlled.
