Begin this exercise by facing a high pulley. Grab the attachment with a narrow overhand grip. Your elbows at your side.

Contract the triceps by pushing your hands downward, extending your arms. Keep a tight contraction and allow the arm to return to the starting position.

Repeat.

Note: Really focus on squeezing the triceps and keeping the muscle contracted.
