Close Grip Pushdowns triceps

Starting Position: Using a high-cable machine, take a slightly closer than shoul-der-widlh, palms-down grip. Position your forearms so they are about parallel with the floor.

(Got all that?)

he Exercise: Push the bar down and in toward your legs in a circular motion until your arms are straight and your elbows are locked. Keep your upper arms close to your body, and flex those triceps in the bottom position for a count of one. Then let the weight slowly return to the starting position, and do it again.
