The term triceps refers to three heads: the medial head, the lateral head, and the long head. The lateral or “outer” head gives width to the arm and creates the classic “horseshoe” when the arm is extended. The most effective exercise for the outside of the head is the rope triceps pushup. While performing rope pushups, to really engage the outside of your head, keep your elbows out and rotate your hands down into the movement, squeezing your triceps with your arms fully extended. As the weight comes back up, keep your elbows locked, even if it means reducing your range of motion. Just focus on extending and compressing.
How to do the cable triceps press on the rope
• Stand in front of a cable machine and place the pin on top. • Add the attachment of your choice. In this case, we will use the rope attachment to achieve the greatest range of motion (see below for other handle attachment options). • Start with your arms at your sides and elbows close to your body with tension on the cable. • Lean slightly forward from the hips so that the angle of the cable is roughly in line with your body. • Keeping your elbows at your sides, press the rope handles down on either side of your thighs. • Rotate your wrists slightly outward for maximum contraction at the bottom of the movement and hold for at least one second.
• Come back slowly and under control at first, squeeze your biceps hard, then repeat the number of repetitions detailed in your training plan.

The importance of a great back in bodybuilding
In bodybuilding, there is a saying: “competitions are won by the back”. You can look great from the front, but if your back isn’t up to it, you’ll have to fight the bodybuilders who have worked hard to build a massive back.
And make no mistake, building a good back is hard work. Your back muscles are some of the largest and strongest in your body, and back exercises require effort and dedication. However, this effort is worth it. A broad, balanced back identifies you as a bodybuilder and helps provide that coveted V-shaped profile.
