tricep pushdown is a exercise machine exercise that primarily targets the triceps.

This is certainly one of those exercises that it seems like everyone does and yes, it's not really a big compound movement so some people will knock it and say that all you need to build your triceps are things like bench press, military press, close grip bench press, etc. but the tricep pushdown really is a phenomenal exercise for targeting the triceps (and with minimal elbow discomfort which is important for me because a lot of other triceps exercises cause me elbow pain).
This should be a staple on EVERY tricep workout
For this machine focus more on your form, rather than how much weight you can lift to see better results.
