    Pushdown & Pressdown

    What's the difference between this two triceps exercises?
    I've searched through Google, but seems like they're just the same.
    If they are the same, why in Chris Mason's arms routine he say to do a giant set CG bench press+pushdown+dips and then pressdown?

    Ok, thank you very much.
    So, Chris used different names to confuse dumb people like me

    pushdown- only movement from the elbow joint allowed -

    pressdown- lean more into the exercise and elbows allowed to move from side of body .

    watch the first 5 mins of pumping iron, u will see a guy doing pressdowns on the lat pulldown machine
