High Cable Bar Triceps Extension (Overhead)

High cable overhead triceps extension is an exercise which targets the triceps, more specifically the long head. Since the long head of the triceps is attached to the scapula, isolating it requires the arms to be above the head. These overhead triceps extensions can be performed on any high cable pulley using any form of bar attachment. Making sure the elbows are as high as possible above the head and do not move is the most important thing to consider if perfect form is your priority which it should.
