The next time you do an arm workout, take some time to truly appreciate the gains you've made. Not only should it slow down – Men's Health Fitness director Ebenezer Samuel, C.S.C.S., wants you to stop.
Today's exercise builds up in your arms and forces you to work through a triceps pressdown move more purposefully than if you were going through the set as fast as possible. You stop shortly after the middle point of your pause, which gives you the opportunity to get a more explosive pressure to build your triceps.
] "This break clears the energy you created at the beginning of the movement," says Samuel. "This means that your tricep needs to restart the movement from scratch to create a new acceleration to stop the depression, resulting in a different quality of contraction at the bottom of the repetition, and you should see a strong burn in your tris feel."
To perform the high, kneeling triceps pressure down, you need a practice band and a large anchor, such as a pull-up bar, to attach to. Samuel says that you can use a cable machine if you want. If you do not have a stable band, check this option of Draper's Strength.
