Purpose of Exercise:
TO WORK THE TRICEPS THROUGH A FULL RANGE OF MOTION.

Hook a short bar to an overhead cable and pulley, stand close to the bar and grasp it with an overhand grip, hands about 10 inches apart.

Press the bar down as far as possible, locking out your arms and feeling the triceps contract fully.

Release and let the bar come up as far as possible without moving your elbows.

Warning:
Keep your elbows tucked in close to your body and stationary. Keep your whole body steady – don’t lean forward to press down with your body weight.

Breathing:
Exhale when your arms are locked at pressing down.
Inhale when the bar comes up.

Variation:
You can vary your grip, the type of bar you use, how close you stand to the bar, or the width between your hands; or you can do a three-quarter movement, going from all the way up to three-quarters of the way down in order to work the lower triceps more directly.
