The tricep push down is a great move for building the triceps. But a lot of people do them wrong by placing excess strain on the elbow joints. In this video I'll show you the right way to do them for maximum results.
I personally like to take my tricep push downs and tricep extensions through a full range of motion and purposely stretch out the triceps in the bottom of the rep.
However, a lot of folks will purposely stop their reps short by only bringing their arms to 90 degree angles. What this does is lock up your elbows and places all the stress on the joint. But when you go past 90 degrees (especially with tricep work) you'll stretch out the muscles and transfer the stress from the elbow joint to the actual triceps themselves.
I suggest you try doing both variations in your next arm workout, stopping at 90 degrees, and also going through the full range of motion and stretching out your triceps. And then decide for yourself what one works the best for you.
