Cybex Arm Extension
This machine is great for working the Tricep muscle (back of arm)

To get a safe and effective workout:

  • Adjust the seat height, so when seated on the machine, the arms are at a 90-degree angle
  • Adjust the backrest, so when seated on the machine, the elbows are resting on the pad, in alignment with the axis point and back is supported by the pad
  • Sit tall, keep elbows in alignment with the shoulders (do not allow the elbows to roll in or out), relax the shoulders and feet shall be flat on the floor
  • Lift the handles and grasp the ends
  • Exhale as you extend the arm and press the handles forward, keeping elbows in alignment with shoulder and stable on the pad
  • Inhale to return, keeping the weight stack from resting back onto the weight stack
