This isn’t a “hey, tell me what women like post.” Ha… I had to say it.
But I had a question for the ladies on here about training. My gf just began training with more free weights and is still a newbie. I’m proud of her progress so far, but she’s been having problems with triceps.
She was telling me that she wasn’t able to lift as much in over head tricep extensions as she can in curls. My logic says that 2/3 of the arm is made up of triceps so would be stronger than the bicep. But she said not only she but other women from the gym have that problem.
Does she just need to train triceps more or does she not have the arm potential that men have? I’m just confused as to why biceps are different than triceps.
She needs to train triceps more. It really is a case of just doing it.
If she needs motivation, remind her that better triceps mean avoiding that flabby upper arm issue that women tend to get.
I will see what I can do with the subject. It doesnt help that I have her and her sister with the so-called “trainer’s advice” from the gym. Pick up a weight and do it as many times are you can. Let’s just say the same trainer for her sister has her working on the 8 lbers only because its a “struggle.” Argh. Fighting the family almost and cause well…that guy is a trainer and I’m not.
I always want to say “who do you want to take advice from? That skinny guy or me with the 18” guns?" Though they would probably say, “I dont want to get too big.”
