    I'm doing normal high to low cable extensions to work out my triceps, but I feel a pretty heavy burn in my abs as well. Is there something about my form? I stand straight up (instead of leaning over trying to push the weight down) and my elbows stay strictly to my sides.

    I normally do this in conjunction with overhead extensions and dips. is this normal to feel it in ur abs?

    Pic of how you're doing them? If you're facing away from the plates and pulling over your head, I would think it's normal unless your back is against something.

    nothing wrong with that your body tries to work as a unit as much as it can

    Really? You mean your core stabilizes you when doing things standing?

    just means your abs arent up to snuff. They arent used to keeping your torso stable under that kinda resistence. The more you do them the less sore you'll be in the midsection. Atleast thats how it is for me.
