It’s kind of funny and sad that most people looking to add size to their arms will ignore the triceps as a muscle group on their own. Though I have to wonder about that since many folks at the gym will do some triceps exercises at the gym as a point of showing off.
Personally I’m not doing a lot of lifting right now, or for a while. I’m pending an abdomen reconstruction surgery due to “issues”. These arm exercises those are a great way to get some good exercise in without me having the strain my core too much (albeit, using much lighter weights then I would like). The important thing for me here is to get some exercise in so that I don’t become a pile of flab before surgery.
I have been trying to introduce my wife into HIT so that she doesn’t have to spend so much time doing “this or that” exercises like her friends do, and these triceps routines were a great way of getting her to forget about the dreaded “Grand Ma Arms Folds” that she worries about.
So for getting my arms bigger, I have to wait on that. Using the information provided in the article for maintaining what I have (or at least reducing the risks of atrophy. My fear). Both the 30-10-30 routine and being able to hit these smaller groups are important since they can be targeted without as much risk to my core.
Thank you for continuing to develop and provide us with these data sets and routines.
