Incline Triceps Extension with Cable

This exercise uses cables to isolate and work the triceps (muscles on the back of the arms).


  1. Place an incline bench facing away from a cable pulley.
  2. Attach a short straight bar to the pulley and adjust the height so that your arms can extend fully.
  3. Lie face up on the bench and grasp the bar with a narrow overhand grip.
  4. Starting with your elbows bent overhead, slowly lower the bar towards your feet.
  5. Pause at the bottom and then return to starting position.
