The Tricep Extension Machine is a great way to isolate and strengthen the back of the upper arms. Learn how to perform this exercise with the team at Fitness Institute.

Machine: Life Fitness Triceps Extension

To begin, set the appropriate seat height and weight. Sit facing towards the pad with the chest up against it. Take hold of the handles then rest the upper arm and elbows on the pad – This is the starting position (Figure 1).


From here, push handles down towards the ground using your triceps (Figure 2), then slowly bring the arms up to return to the start position.

Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
