women's health - OVERHEAD ROPE EXTENSION

STRENGTHENS

TRICEPS, SHOULDER STABILIZERS

STARTING POSITION

Using the double-rope attachment, face away from the cable column in a staggered foot stance. Extend your arms outward until they are straight with nearly locked elbows. Anchor your shoulders down toward your hips and maintain this position (A).

MOVEMENT

Without changing the angle of your upper arm, allow your elbows to bend so that your hands move over your head toward the cable column (B). EASY
Pause with your elbows bent around 90 degrees.
Activate your triceps to drive your arms back to the starting position with elbows nearly locked (A). HARD

Why It’s Perfect for You

I love how this movement keeps tension on the triceps, allowing for more time to build strong arms. It also helps to improve shoulder stability and to eliminate bra bulge under the arm and around the back, trouble zones for many women.
