    Underhand pulldown, emphasising the 1st part of the movement so when the muscle is most stretched.

    It depend son what you consider "the lower" Underhand pulldown places more focus on the backside (long head) tricep. Rope pulldowns work the medial head.

    Heres a nice diagram of the 3 heads and workouts for each

    If you are doing overhand exercises, you emphasize triceps long head.

    Anything else, hits the medial head and lateral head.
