The Triceps Rope Pulldown is an upper body exercise that primarily targets the triceps. This is an isolation exercise which is well suited to beginner lifters.


  • Triceps Kickback


  • Set up a cable machine in it’s top position with a double-ended rope attachment.
  • Starting with your hands at about chest level, pull the cable downwards and apart until your arms are completely extended, consciously squeezing the triceps at the bottom.
  • Slowly raise the cable back to the start position in line with your chest.
  • Ensure your elbows remain by your side throughout the movement and keep your chest out and up to isolate the triceps.
