The tricep cable pull down is an excellent weight training osteoporosis exercise. Many people use it as an alternative to the tricep extension exercise on the floor or ball. However, caution is advised for people with osteoporosis since the additional load and technique can lead to poor alignment, a flexed posture and the increased risk of fracture. The following video demonstrates the guidelines for executing the tricep cable pull down – an excellent exercise for osteoporosis.
I encourage you to incorporate the tricep cable pulldown into your weight training osteoporosis program. However, pay attention to how you execute the pulldown (especially your alignment) and you will enjoy many years of safe bone building.
