Kneeling cable triceps extension

The kneeling cable triceps extension is a single-joint exercise meant to isolate the triceps muscles using a high pully on a cable stack and a bench. It can also be performed in a tall-kneeling stance from a low pully. It is most commonly used in muscle-building triceps or arm workouts.


  1. Emphasizes stretching the triceps under load, which can increase muscle growth
  2. Cables provide constant tension throughout movement, including at peak contraction
  3. Easy to change weights for dropsets
  4. Stabilizing your elbows against the bench can make it easier to focus on the mind-muscle connection
