Precor Tricep Press Instructions

  • Set the seat height so when you sit down the upper handles are even with the center of your chest.
  • Set the back rest so when you sit down and grab the handles there is a mild stretch in your shoulders.
  1. Sit down, press your lower back into the back rest and grab the handles with a neutral grip, palms facing each other.
  2. Bring your elbows tight to your body and keep them in and down throughout this lift..
  3. Slowly press the weight forward, focusing on pushing with the muscles of your triceps.
    1. You will feel like you are extending your arms, not pressing.
  4. Stop when your arms are straight, do not lock your elbows, as you pause at the top of this lift.
  5. Slowly return the weight back to the starting position, stopping just before the weights rest on the stack.
  6. Repeat.
