  1. Attach a single-ended rope to a shoulder-height cable pulley. If you don鈥檛 have a single-ended rope, you can just use the end of the cable.
  2. Grasp the rope and stand perpendicular to the pulley, with your loaded arm away from the pulley.
  3. Step away from the pulley until the cable is pulled taut and your arm is stretched across your chest.

✅聽Execution

  • Exhale as you pull your elbow out to the side until it points away from the pulley and then extend your elbow. You can do this in one motion or two.
  • Hold for a count of two.
  • Inhale as you reverse the motion and return the rope to the starting position.
  • Repeat for more repetitions.

Comments and tips

  • Using a shoulder-width grip and tucking your elbows into your body are important to maximize the emphasis on your triceps brachii instead of on your pectoralis major.
  • Do not use a grip that鈥檚 narrower than shoulder width. This will not put more emphasis on your triceps brachii. Instead, it will decrease your range of motion, put excessive pressure on your wrists, and limit the amount of weight that you can use.
  • Never use a false (aka thumbless or 鈥渟uicide鈥) grip with any kind of bench press, including the close-grip barbell bench press.
  • For safety, have a spotter ready when lifting heavy.
  • When performed using proper form, the close-grip barbell bench press is one of the most effective exercises for activation and development of the triceps brachii.
