Tricep Circut

The Tricep is the large muscle on the back of the arm (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triceps_brachii_muscle) – not only is it a complex muscle (Tri= 3 parts), but if trained right (with this circut!), it can be one that makes you stand out from the fair weather gym go-ers.

See my main site if you need help with the exercises: http://www.thegymcoach.com/

The CIRCUT:
1) “Skull Crusher” (lying on a bench) – 10 reps
2) Tricep press – 15 reps (quickly) [with a barbell, lying on bench, press the bar to your navel – like a chest press but lower – keeping your elbows close to your sides on the way down]
3) Tricep press down (on machine) – 10 reps at 30 lbs; 15 reps at 20 lbs
4) Single arm tricep kick backs – 12 reps on each side

Repeat the circut 3 times total, interspersed with 5 minutes of high impact cardio (running, fast pased eliptical, or stair climbing)

(Appropriate tricep kick back starting position)
