In this edition of Live Lean TV, I had a viewer request for a tricep toning workout. Well since tank top season is here, I put together my Get Tank Top Ready: Tricep Circuit Workout Video. Get ready to get sexy lean arms!
As I mentioned in the video, I don’t typically isolate my triceps as a stand alone workout. To get lean and lose overall body fat, be sure to focus most of your time completing compound movements such as squats, lunges, deadlifts, and presses. These are the exercises that use the most muscle, thus burn the most calories. Complete those types of exercises first, then at the end of your workout, focus on these types of isolation movements to strengthen specific problem areas.
One more thing, there is no such thing as spot reduction…this simply means you can’t just focus your effort on losing fat in one area (i.e. on the back of your arms). The more muscle groups you work…the more fat will come off from all areas of your body.
Rest: No breaks between exercises (30 sec break after each circuit)
Sets: Complete 3-4 circuits
A1. Modified Close Grip Pushup with 2 sec hold x 10 reps (beginners: go from your knees)
A2. Dumbbell Tricep Extension x 10 reps (tempo: 3-0-1-0)
A3. Bench Dips x to failure
