Triceps can be a difficult muscle group to isolate and work on. This unique group of muscles is attached to the biceps, chest and deltoids, so you can see why it isn’t so simple to strictly target the triceps. Just performing straight reps over and over really isn’t going to give you the results you desire. Most people make this simple mistake when trying to build muscle. Every different muscle really needs to be treated differently. There are certain exercises that are more effective for toning up your thighs, your abs, or your arms. You can’t just use the same boring routine over and over and expect this to work on every muscle group.
Triceps, as I have pointed out earlier, are a tricky little group. The exercises you use must be specifically designed to target these muscles. Focus on the contraction of the triceps. What this movement does, is split muscle fibres. These split fibres are what help to increase the muscle mass of your triceps.
Some exercises to help with this area are dips, the bench press, pushdowns, and overhead extensions. All of these techniques apply pressure on the triceps causing the muscles to contract and thus increase in mass.
You will find that the more nutrient enriched your blood is, the faster your muscle tissues will grow. By changing your diet to include lost of proteins, essential fats, and lots of water your body will quickly receive the nutrients it needs. Don’t forget to get rid of excess sugar and carbs. Cutting out carbs completely isn’t the best option. It’s important to remember that everything you do must be in moderation. The same applied to exercise. There’s no need to go full force, 7 day a week. Your body needs a day off here and there to rest. This rest is an essential part of your work out routine, as it helps to repair any damaged tissue and prevents your muscles from becoming over exerted.
