The best cable tricep exercises for bigger arms

Sculpt seriously strong arms by building bigger and more defined triceps by adding these tried-and-tested cable tricep exercises to your gym training plan, says New Body Plan’s Joe Warner

The best cable tricep exercises for bigger arms

Cable rope pushdown

Using a rope attachment for the cable tricep pushdown means you can move your triceps through their full range of motion, fully flexing the muscle at the bottom of each rep, for greater gains.


Cable EZ-bar pressdown

Holding an EZ-bar slightly reduces range of motion but is the most joint-friendly grip on your wrist, allowing you to lift heavier and with greater control.

Your complete guide to building bigger arms

Cable overhead triceps extension

Facing away from the cable stack and straightening your arms up and over your head works your triceps through a different movement pattern and a different angle to work more muscle fibres.

Single-arm cable triceps pressdown

Working each arm independently prevents your dominant, stronger arm doing most of the work, allowing you to build up both arms equally.
