Triceps Workout: 3 Superset Workout Routine For Killer Triceps


Not surprisingly it's more common to specialize in bicep training against tricep. But training your triceps is equally important, if less, for overall proportional shape, strength, and definition.

With this six move workout, comprising of two super-sets, we've compiled the right tricep training for you! Plus this may incorporate back, biceps, and a small chest impact, meaning you'll define in next to no time.

By performing the super-sets you're engaging the neglected muscle fibers, meaning your body will become stronger and gain muscle mass, supplying you with a sculpted, even definition, and equal strength throughout each muscle group within the arm.

How to do the workout

This is a six-move session divided into three supersets. Do a group of move 1A and go straight on to 1B, sticking to the sets, reps and rest shown until all sets are completed for both. Then follow this same superset pattern for moves 2A and 2B, then 3A and 3B.

Superset 1

Warm-up thoroughly by doing three to four sets each of move 1A and 1B, starting with a low-weight, high-rep set. With each warm-up set increase the load and reduce the reps until you get to your work set weight.

1A Decline close-grip press

Sets 4 Reps 12 Rest 60sec

Tip: Having your elbows tight to your sides shifts the emphasis to your triceps.

How


  1. Lie on a decline bench holding an EZ-bar with a shoulder-width grip.
  2. Lower the bar to your stomach, keeping your elbows tight to your sides.
  3. Then press back up.


1B Decline skull crusher

Sets 4 Reps 12 Rest 60sec

Tip: It’s a great move to isolate your triceps and move them through a good range of motion.

How:


  1. Lie on a decline bench holding an EZ-bar with a shoulder-width grip.
  2. Keeping your elbows pointing straight up, lower the bar down towards your forehead.
  3. Pause, then straighten your arms to return to the start.


Superset 2

Triceps dips and diamond press-ups are two of the most challenging bodyweight moves you can do and they’re seriously effective for building bigger triceps. Focus on good form and keeping each rep slow and controlled to increase muscular workload and minimize any momentum that will cheat you of maximum gains.

2A Triceps dip

Sets 4 Reps 6-12 Rest 60sec

Tip: It’s the classic bodyweight triceps move because it’s so effective.

How:


  1. Hold parallel bars with your chest up and abs and glutes engaged.
  2. Bend your elbows to lower yourself as far as possible.
  3. Press back up powerfully, without fully locking out your arms at the top.


2B Diamond press-up

Sets 4 Reps 6-12 Rest 60sec

Tip: It’s a tough variation of the press-up that taxes your triceps.

How:


  1. Form a diamond with your thumbs and index fingers, then lower your chest to the floor.
  2. Press back up but don’t lock out your arms.


Superset 3

These two cable moves will increase the workload on your triceps because they must control the weight on the way up as well as the way down. Keep the reps slow and focus on flexing your triceps as hard as possible as you straighten your arms to recruit even more triceps muscle fibers.

3A Cable overhead extension

Sets 4 Reps 15 Rest 60sec

Tip: Using a cable keeps tension on your triceps for both the lifting and lowering part of each rep.

How:

Stand tall, holding the double-rope handle behind your head.
Press upwards to straighten your arms.
Slowly return back to the start position.

3B Cable press-down

Sets 4 Reps 15 Rest 60sec

Tip: It’s an easy move but keeping your form strict will work your triceps to full fatigue.

How:


  1. Stand tall, holding the double-rope handle in both hands.
  2. Keeping your chest up and abs braced, press down to straighten your arms fully.
  3. Return slowly to the start position, squeezing your biceps hard at the top.
