Cable Lying Triceps Extension

The lying cable triceps extension is an isolation exercise performed while lying on a bench. Lying down eliminates the possibility of using momentum from the lower body to push the weight and is a great alternative to a skullcrusher.


  1. Build strength and size in the triceps
  2. Core stability and strength, keeping the low back neutral
  3. Cables allow for constant tension on the muscles
