Rope Cable Attachments

Even though the rope can be harder to handle than other cable attachments, you'll find that once you get used to it, the flexibility of a rope will have you using it as your sole triceps press-down attachment. I even prefer it over a swivel bar , but it's really a personal choice.

Even though a double rope attachment is made of heavy-duty wound polypropylene (a type of rigid plastic), it's limp, so I incorporate a slight twist at the end of each press-down to really flex my triceps. It's here that the rope offers more versatility than any other cable attachment. For example, with a V-bar or straight-bar your hands are stuck in a fixed position and the attachment stays rigid even when your wrists naturally bend during the exercise. A rope, on the other hand, is flexible so it follows the natural movement of your wrists, taking the stress off of them. With the rope you can also add the twist I mentioned above. Just turn your palms outward for an extra squeeze at the bottom of the press-down. I do this by turning my little fingers out and up at the end of each contraction so that I feel the stress on my outer triceps.

With a rope cable attachment you can perform more than triceps press-downs. Try a rope for overhead extensions, rows and straight-arm pull-downs and ab crunches. You can even perform single-arm versions of most of exercises with a single rope attachment or by wrapping the unused side of the rope over the other.

To use a rope cable attachment for triceps press-downs:

  • Face the cable stack and grab the rope by its V-shaped rubber handles.
  • Your elbows should be bent at almost 90-degree angle, but remember to keep them glued to your sides.
  • Press the rope down, while keeping those elbows in.
  • Extend your arms fully and twist your little fingers out and upwards at the end of the press so you feel it burn your outer triceps.
  • Return to the starting position. Repeat.
