Excellent article that needed to be written.

Well what more to be said :slight_smile: Triceps tend to be a muscle built for strength and power because of it’s function (think of throwing a punch, or pushing away an opponent) as such because of its function an fiber makeup it responds best to lower reps (within reason, especially with isolation exercises) and heavier weights.
