jailhousestrong- I want to share with you an unconventional exercise that will more effectively overload your triceps than skullcrushers, and at the same time will save your elbows. I have used this exercise with an assortment of clients ranging from bros to top pros. The exercise is the chain triceps extension. ASSEMBLY/BENEFITS Chain triceps extensions are performed by attaching chains with a carabiner to the same apparatus you use to perform triceps cable pushdowns. The benefits are you are able to get some of the stretch (lacking in cable) that you feel with a barbell. As your arms flex (bend) to the stretched position, the chains unload on the floor. This removes much of the strain off of the elbows. As you extend (straighten) your elbows back to the starting position, the chains start to lift off the floor again, giving you the continuous tension and peak contraction advantage of the cables. As you complete the extension, more force will be required to finish the lift. As the range of motion lengthens, resistance becomes amplified. The result is an opening of the anabolic gateway, simply because you are forced to recruit more muscle fibers. This means more growth and more strength!
