1 x 12 followed by a light set/s of dumbbells to failure

1 x 10 followed by a light set/s of dumbbells to failure

 

TRICEPS

These are two tough but highly beneficial muscle gaining workouts. Clearly you wouldn’t do these sessions straight after each other as they are very intense. If you find you are struggling just lower the weights, rather than performing cheap reps.

Keep up the good work
