Cable Machines 101 – Triceps
Cable Triceps exercises can be an effective addition to your upper arm workouts for a couple of reasons. First, the sustained resistance provided by cable exercises doesn’t allow your triceps to relax at any point through the entire range of motion. Also, cable triceps exercises offer a safe way to increase weight and resistance, while challenging your core and stabilizing muscles as well. This results in your muscles being tighter, developed and more defined.
