    These are pretty good, as long as you don't do them wrong. Keep the cable in the middle of your nose, stand up straight. Shoulders back and down. Isolate those triceps by avoiding any extra movement.
    Lots of guys do this one wrong, they lean forward, put the cable on one side of their head (usually their strongest side) and use more pecs than triceps. You may feel cool doing tricep pushdowns this way, but you'll get nowhere.
