The key to executing this movement properly is in the set up of the bench. If the bench is too far then the angle of the cable and weight momentum will change and will target your triceps more than your back. Thus, you need to set up so that when you stretch out your arms there is another foot left between the weight stack and your palms. Therefore, take your time in adjusting the bench properly.

Another item worth pointing out is that you have to be careful on the way down (when releasing the weight back down) and not allow it to jerk your arms back. A sudden pull may result in shoulder injury, hyper-extension of the upper lats and even chest muscles. Thus, it's important to keep proper pace (steady and slow) when doing this exercise.
