Spice Up Your Arm Workout with this Triceps Exercise

If you're here because you wanted a spicy arm workout... you came to the right place! If you're here because you are my mom and you're just being supportive... thanks, mom. Love you!


When most people think of building stronger, more muscled arms they automatically think of the biceps curl. But did you know that the triceps accounts for around 2/3 of the arm's total mass? That's right! Triceps beat out the biceps all day.


Most triceps work is done with an overhand or neutral grip. Today's exercise is going to supinate your hands aka use an underhand grip. This does a few things: provides variety, builds stronger triceps, and places more stress on the medial head of the triceps. This variation is also down single arm, so it trains the arms unilaterally!


Introducing the handsome brother of the traditional triceps push-down:





Two options for programming these:


1: I like to use these as a finisher and go back and forth doing 5 reps per arms until failure. Key: you have to go heavy or this will take forever!


2: Superset this exercise with a cross body hammer curl.


3-4 Sets:



Thanks for reading y'all,


Ben
