I posted this question in Charles Staley’s EDT ‘Article,’ but it has apparently died, so I’m reposting here.
One of the exercises in his routine is Lying DB Tricep Extensions. I think they’re hurting my elbows. Am I not warming up enough, or should I just pick a different tricep exercise? The weight I’m using is my absolute max for 10 reps.
Here’s what I’m doing:
warm up with no weight: 15-20 reps, then:
Chin-ups, 27.5 lbs * 5 reps
Dips, 60 lbs * 5 reps (my shoulders are much better now)
100 reps total
warm up Tricep Ext: 25lbs * 5, 305, 355, 405, 455, then:
Lying DB Tricep Extensions: 45lbs * 5
EZ Curl bar: 85 lbs * 5, no warmup
60 +/- reps total
