Would you like to avoid years of wasted training and learn to optimise your results?
The chances are if you go to the gym, you want to see your body change and muscles develop. What is the point of all the sweat and effort if you don’t see the results?
If you want to be more productive in your sessions and build bigger triceps, avoid these 5 mistakes!
1.Stop doing skull crushers… IMMEDIATELY! While this exercise looks great, in reality the flexibility it requires is just not available to the vast majority of people! Use dumbells instead!
2.Find your range of motion. Your range of motion is specific to you! If you cannot feel your muscle activating before contracting, then you need to reassess the movement!
3.Unless your triceps need a lot of work, you will be using them frequently when performing most push movements (think bench, dumbbell or shoulder press), while I would still train them specifically, you will get to train them more frequently if you tag them onto push sessions!
4.Avoid allowing momentum to waste your time! One of the keys to hypertrophy (the growth of muscle) is maintaining tension within a muscle, remember, if you can’t control it, you may want to drop the weight a little or try training with tempo (slow down the eccentric/ negative and incorporate isometric contractions).
5.Ditch the weight! You will see and feel much better results when you really lock into movements. I love finding innovative ways to create as much stability in the body and truly isolating muscle groups!
