    I think the pushdowns will involve the chest aswell (and lats?) where the triceps extensions won't use the chest. The tricep extension isolates the triceps (if done correctly), pushdowns don't.

    Forget both. Just bench and OH press.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    now that I really think about it, it is obvious they aren't the same. Thanks

    I see all the great big guys at the gym doing the pushdown, why do you say to drop them chubrock?

    you get more bang for your buck with the bench press and OH press.
    but imo i dont think you should drop the pushdowns i think they are a good exercise if done in moderation.
