Hacks for Bigger Triceps

how to get bigger arms

If you want your arms to look massive, it’s not about building your biceps. Now that doesn’t mean that you should stop doing curls, as it is important to have nice biceps. For tips on how to grow those, check out my post here. But if you really want your arms to look huge, it’s your triceps that you really need to be building.

There are so many different ways to target the triceps muscles, but most people just stick to the same old routine day after day. That’s not how your muscles grow. You need to be shocking them so that they don’t get comfortable with your workout. Try out the following hacks to give your tri’s a real shock and start building massive arms!

Tips for Blasting Your Triceps

I should start off by noting that you should be following proper form when performing any tricep exercise, or any exercise for that matter. With these triceps moves, you are putting a lot of stress on your elbows and shoulders, so be sure to watch instructional videos to ensure you have proper form to avoid injury.

Here are a few different exercises that you can try to help build bigger tricep muscles, courtesy of Men’s Health.

Dumbbell Fly and Diamond Push-Ups

Bringing your hands closer together when performing a push-up puts a lot more strain on your triceps. More strain means bigger gains! Put your hands together in a diamond formation to really blast your tri’s.

Do a set of diamond push-ups and follow them up with dumbbell flies to really give your tricep muscles a great workout! Doing them in this order is the best. If you do the flies first, your shoulders may be too fatigued to get the most out of your push-ups.

Triceps Tri-Set

Just check out the video below and try performing this workout challenge. Trust me, your arms will be burning! All you need is a bench and a set of dumbbells, something that any gym (or even your home gym, if you have that) will have on hand. This quick workout will blast your triceps from all angles so you really feel the burn. That means your muscles are getting torn apart, which means that have to repair and grow back bigger than before to handle that new level of stress!

Overhead Triceps Extension

A lot of triceps exercises take place by pushing something down. With this exercise, you’re pushing a dumbbell up over your head and getting a full extension to increase the intensity of the workout. You will be able to use a heavier load and perform more reps to really get a deep burn in your tri’s. This is an exercise that you must add to your routine if you want to maximize your tricep workout. As a bonus, you also get a bit of a workout for your shoulders and trapezius muscles as well.

More Tips to Gain Mass

If you want a full workout plan that is specifically designed for adding size, there is no better than the Jim Stoppani Shortcut to Size program.

In addition to performing the right exercises, you also need proper nutrition. Along with a healthy diet, you need to be on supplements like TestoGen testosterone booster and consider stacking with Crazy Bulk supplements. Feed your muscles what they crave if you want them to grow!
