A pushdown is a strength training exercise used for strengthening the triceps muscles in the back of the arm. The exercise is completed by pushing an object downward against resistance. It is a little-known fact that doing the triceps pushdown also works the biceps muscle as well.[citation needed] This is also vice-versa for the bicep curls, which work the triceps.[citation needed]
