Guillotine Extensions – Smashing your triceps with repeated reps of poorly aligned exercises can result in inflammation and elbow pain. Instead, choose exercises that put you in good alignment to build bigger triceps without the unnecessary wear and tear.
“X” cables (or cross cables) are simply where you cross over two cables creating an “X” in the middle. Usually, you just hold the end of the cable. X cables are a good way to align the force through your elbows. Torque and valgus stress on the elbows are more easily managed.
Guillotine extensions, shown here, are a good option for overall triceps development and arguably one of the best-aligned triceps exercises to limit elbow stress. You’ll notice how close the cables are to your elbows with these. They somewhat resemble a Tate press, but performed with cables. Just keep your chin up and watch your neck!
