In last week’s LIVE YouTube Q&A Session that I did, one of the questions I got was about “How to get the triceps to respond better to training”? My initial response was that it was rare for the triceps to be one of those “stubborn” muscle groups that don’t grow despite your hard work.
BUT THEN…I realized that I may have been assuming that he was training triceps THE RIGHT WAY and NOT committing what I call the 7 SINS OF TRICEP TRAINING”.
You know what happens when you assume, right? From the way you hold the bar on the classic “Skullcrusher” exercise to the proper way to bang out “Tricep Pushups”…making even just a few of these mistakes will definitely cut back the results you should be seeing in your arms.
Look, the trouble with training mistakes isn’t even that you make them. It’s that you often don’t make JUST ONE!
Make a few in your triceps workout, a couple more in your other workouts, a few with your nutrition, one or two in supplementation and another with the type of conditioning/cardio you do and it REALLY starts to add up.
*** BOTTOM LINE: The less cumulative mistakes you make the better your results will be and the faster you’ll get to your goals.
