Tricep pushdowns

Targets: Triceps

Perks: Allows you to isolate, strengthen and tone the triceps.

Move: Find something sturdy and stable to loop your band around and grab one handle in each hand. Keep a slight bend in your knees and start with your arms in a 90-degree angle. Keep your elbows at your side as you push the handle down until your arms are straight (but don’t lock your elbows). Your forearm should be the only part of your body moving with this exercise – make sure you keep the upper arm steady against your side. Pause for a second at the bottom and repeat.
