Tricep Pressdown Substitute


#1

What is a good substitute for a tricep pressdown?

With Dumbells or Barbell.


#2

Skull crushers, overhead tricep extensions, close grip bench, board presses, elbows out tricep extensions.


#3

These are all pressing up because you can't do pressdowns with dumbbells or barbells.


#4

Dips.

Much better than iso pushdowns.


#5

I guess. I don't even know why the original poster was looking for substitutes. I just gave some examples that will target his triceps.


#6

Exactly. If you can't pressdown, the only alternative is to press up or away.
