  1. I love the rope pull down! My last trip to the gym, my trainer taught me how to do these. Your form is perfect scott

  2. hey scott these videos are great and all but when are you going to show us how to do the kameha meha wave! jk! I really enjoy your vids man thanks!

  3. @CallofDavey y don't u dumbasses understand that the reason he's like this is because that's where he wants to be

  4. Scott, i feel awkward doing this at my local 24.. it feels like such a sexual motion and it feels like everyones looking at me : /

  5. Hi Scott i enjoy your videos, do you think you could talk about the subject of building cock muscles, mines like 3 inches when excited and im wanting some seriouse girth and length increase to satisfy the ladies. Please help.

  6. @consoler111 going up higher than 90 degrees puts the tricep in relaxation. you want to keep it under tension the whole time.

  7. Scott, this exercise hurts my neck and also may girlfriends. Have you ever experienced this or am i making a major mistake?

  8. @gogopatel11 I'm not even going to be bothered by explaining it to you… just read you previous post man… and behold the uppermost contradiction and dumbness of that question.

    why would you want to be strong and NOT big anyway

  9. @kidanr If you keep your elbows in the same position it hits the triceps, it's when you let your whole arm move up that it stops working.

  10. @ScottHermanFitness True, it's for isolating the triceps, so you don't bring the your arms all the way up, just to about your chest.

  11. @IdentityHero i would say yes.. all you need is weights or good resistance bands like bodylastics. A pull up bar and strict nutrition

  12. when im doing this i only feel pressure on my deltoids. i can only feel my triceps working while im using a bar instead of a rope.

  13. It would be a shame if you did not get ripped when other people are able to get rid of fat so easily using Atomic Fat Loss (search for it on google).

  14. My classmates laughed when I told them I was going to shed pounds with "Fat Blast Formula", but then they saw the results. Do a search on google for "Fat Blast Formula" to see their reaction.

  15. Scott's older videos just like his new ones, are some of the best, simple, and most informative fitness videos on the whole of the Internet. Thanks a ton Scott, you've helped me transform in ways you wouldn't imagine!

  16. I know this isn't an important exercise but does anybody know how to break a plateau on it? I can only do 35lbs on it and can't seem to go heavier without sacrificing perfect form for all 12 or so reps.

  17. Is stopping at 90 degrees better than coming all the way up on the rep? I thought it was always beneficial to do a full ROM. On some of the hodgetwins videos I'm seeing lately, they don't do a full ROM either.

  18. I have a problem, after tricep-pushdowns (bar) I always have problems with hemorrids, where I'm wrong? Anybody can help? Spine position is neutral and knees are a little bit flexed. Tnx!

  19. I have a huge problem with this exercise. I can only do 40lbs and I've been doing it for over 2 months now and I can't move on to heavier weights. What really frustrates me is that me and my friend started at the same time with the same weigh, but he is now able to do 90lbs without any problem and I'm still stuck at 40 and can't go higher. My form is good but I get tired after only 2 sets and my arms are unable to continue extending fully because of all the pain I get on the elbows. Now before you say I'm not strong enough, I've improved on every other triceps exercise like skull crushers where I don't get this pain at all as well as dips it's just this exercise that kills me and I can't do nothing about it to improve.

  20. Why You say 90 degrees u have to look how the triceps looks in the body the anatomic so you see it's more useful to use the full range of motion go as high as you can and go down

  21. Thank you man , I've been watching your tutorials so I can pull these exercises off correctly . Today's my first day at the gym 😅

  22. Just what I was looking for!! exactly like the comment below – short and sweet, all the info needed – got. Great. Thanks!!
