Instructions: How To

Handle Band Tricep Extension is an isolation exercise that targets triceps. Similar to Cable Tricep Extensions, you have a lot of control over where our resistance is coming from, which can help you keep tension on your triceps throughout the movement. The use of a handle band also allows for increasing resistance as you progress through the movement, making this a great exercise for developing strength in the latter parts of your range of motion.

  1. Wrap a resistance band around a pull up bar or high fixed object and stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart directly underneath the anchor point.
  2. Grab ahold of the handles with an overhand grip at chest height and bend your elbows so they are next to your torso.
  3. Pull the handles down to your hips keeping your elbows next to your torso.
  4. Return the handles back to the starting position and repeat.
