The triceps press downs on our Apollo high pulley station can help to improve upper body and arm strength, enhance general pressing strength, and ultimately improve performance of the shoulders and chest muscles as they are often the secondary muscle group for most mass building movements like bench press, push press, push ups, dips, etc. Tricep press downs specifically target your triceps, making it a great targeted exercise.
