okay, so now the question: In my mind since I am lowering frequency my workout volume should obviously increase!
so I’ll use chest for example lets say on my first routine (chest/tri:back/bi:leg/shoulders)

1.Rope tricep extensions 3 sets of 20 (warm up/pump blood into the muscles/pre-exhaust)
2.Hammer strength tricep dips 3 sets of 10-12
