Two Arm Pushdown Exercise Description
The following exercise provides written description designed for the individual just getting started with exercise.
Two Arm Pushdown
Muscle Group: Overall Tricep Exercise
Main Objective: Tone the back of the Arms (Triceps) at the same time
Step By Step Instruction:
1. Stand with a shoulder width stance, knees slightly bent and arms at your side.
2. Since this is a pushing movement, starting position begins at your shoulders with palms out.
3. Push both arms down, at the same time, towards the front of your thighs.
4. Release tension. Slowly raise back up to the starting position and pause.
5. Repeat the pushing exercise.
- Do not start at the bottom of this exercise--start at the top by the shoulders.
- Do not allow elbows to move from sides. Doing so works shoulders not triceps. Concentrate.
- Do not work your biceps when bringing arms back up to the starting position. Instead, focus on the resistance in the back of the arms, the triceps area.
1. Focus on working the back of the arms throughout the whole exercise.
2. The 2-Arm Pushdown is a pushing exercise unlike the Barbell Curl (a pulling exercise).
These two exercises are completely. The pushdown starts at the top by your shoulders.The curls start at the bottom and work up. Focus on the muscles you are using with each exercise.
