I think this is a great exercise to use when you are experiencing slight elbow pain in palms down tri extensions or skull crushers. It really hits the medial head important for the elbow joint. Posted this because i spoke on the phone today with a Friend about this. I like both the two handed version with a straight bar or one handed.

Prefer them with a bent bar, keeps the hands in a neutral position.

yes also good. Although people donīt like to talk about "isolation" i think there are exercises which give a unique training effect and this is one of them... in my Humble opinion  Smiley

I think band push downs and 1 arm rope push downs are super gentle on the elbows if u don't have any horrible elbow issues

Reverse grip palms up makes a difference in my opinion.

the funny thing with the one handed version i can do them with good form with my left hand but not with right for some reason.

unilateral exercise. I am the same funk i think itīs normal. this one armed version really leaves your ego at the Door . More important it trains the medial head.

I do these with the elbow pointed 90° away from the body, db touches chest.  Nice stretch and contraction.

Ha, I'm exactly the same... One side works like a piston, the other just doesn't get comfortable...

Two handed I use a V handle with a swivel, so you can use it V side up, I use these when the elbows play up and still get a great pump

Yeah, the whole "isolation" argument is a tired one.

If you want to say you can't isolate and work just ONE part of a muscle, I'm okay with that. But, you can certainly emphasize certain parts over another.

Would these same people rely on front raises to help rear delt development?
Would they dismiss front/rear raises all together because they are "isolation" movements, claiming all you need are presses?

So, when their rear delts lag behind and need to be brought up, do they just do more pressing - since that's all they "need?"
Yes, let's just do more of the same shit that hasn't been working in hopes that it will work.

iīd like the 1-arm reverse grip pushdowns a bit more, cause they are not that hard on my wrists. With a straight bar and reverse grip it could be hard for your wrists if you take a higher weight.

I've heard they are good for developing the lower part of the tricep near the elbow.
