To Bicep or Tricep, that is the question? Round Rock, Pflugerville Personal Trainer

Should more be spent on working the biceps or triceps?  The bicep is consider the vanity muscle, they get noticed more so alot of people spend alot of time working biceps more than triceps.

The triceps are the much bigger of the two muscle groups.  If you are doing bi’s and tri’s on the same day, spend more time on the triceps.

A great way to build strong triceps are dips. But do dips as you would chest press, pile on the resistance and then struggle thru a hardcore set.

So if you doing dips from a dip station add on the weight.   From a bench, feet up, pile on the weight.   Make sure you finish full range of motion on each rep.

Another great exercise is very narrow pushup off a medicine ball.  If these are easy, elevate your feet.   Weighted sand bags can also be added to increase resistance.
