Tirceps & Trapezius

Hi y’all,

Today I want to talk about exercises to train the triceps pretty good and also about the exercises for your trapezius. This one is good because a lot of exercises help you grow but make you walk bended over as well, which is not the right way to walk.

First I got a movie for you guys with a lot of tricep exercises. I don’t do that much of exercises in my workout, just because I don’t have the time for it. I can barely make it to train 3 times a week for 1,5 hour max. With this number of exercises per musclegroup, well it would take days.

Pretty nice tricep if you ask me. The exercises that I got in my workout now are: High Pulley Overhead Cable Tricep Extension, Skullcrushers, Dips, Reverse Grip Cable Tricep Extension One-Handed. I think that 4 exercises is enough for you workout schedule if you do it 4 sets of 12 reps per exercise. Of course, every 4-6 weeks you change your schedule and then you can pick some other exercises, but these work great for me!

Next to that, the trapezius.. How many of you do an exercise for the trapezius with the shoulders bended over when you do the exercise? Well, I know a lot of people and I used to do it myself as well. The guy in the video explains pretty good why it isn’t working when you do it wrong.

As you can see he pulls his shoulders backwards. The way that he explains is a way to do it. Of course you can grab a bar as well and make shrugs with the bar behind you. I use the shoulder press machine to do it. I step on the seat and grap the handles behind me and do it that way. You can do it however you want, just remember that you hold your shoulders to the back.

Well, this was it about triceps and trapezius. Back & Chest exercises are coming up! Keep in touch, stay tuned and enjoy your day!

Sincerely,

Mathieu Duijst
