Straight Up Triceps for Bigger Arms

close-grip bench press

One of the many trends in fitness these days is for every workout to have a clearly stated “functional” purpose. For example, Monday is lower-body pure strength and core stability, Tuesday is upper-body pull and gymnastics skill work, and so on. Fine. Even though we historically set trends at M&F, we’ll play along and follow one for a change.

Today, the objectives are upper-body push strength, triceps hypertrophy, and carving out a badass pair of horseshoes. Clear enough? How about functional? Those who say no have probably never had a decent set of triceps.

This workout will get you headed in that direction with classic no-nonsense exercises and an equitable blend of heavy weight/low reps and light weight/high reps, plus intensity-boosting dropsets and rest-pauses that will leave your triceps with no option but to grow.

Note: For the bench dip exercise in the following workout, use this formula for maximum gains:

  • 1st set (straight set): With two weight plates on your lap, do as many reps as possible (to failure).
  • 2nd set (dropset): Go to failure with two plates on your lap, then immediately take one plate off and rep out to failure again. Do one more dropset by taking the other plate off your lap and repping to failure.
  • 3rd set (rest-pause): Using body weight only, rep out to failure, then rest 10 to 20 seconds and go to failure again. Rest 10 to 20 seconds, and rep out to failure one last time.
