Frequent question: What is tricep rope?

How long should your tricep rope be?

Construction of a tricep rope begins with a thick piece of rope. The rope usually is 24 to 28 inches (60 to 70 cm) long and is between 1.25 and 1.5 inches (3.1 to 3.8 centimeters) in diameter. Slight variations in the length of the rope will result in a slightly different angle and range of motion during the lift.

What muscles does tricep rope work?
