1/2 your way to bigger triceps

In a previous post I explained a technique that would help hit your chest even better on the bench press. This time around this technique will help you blast your triceps even more. You will basically be doing the opposite of the chest routine. You will be using the close grip bench press for this with your arms tightly to your sides and a narrow grip on the bar. To begin take the bar off the rack and let it come down half way from the top, stop and then drive the bar all the way up and then all the way completely down. This is 1 rep. The top part of the press is when your triceps are activated the most so you will take advantage of that with this technique. Below is a workout you can use.

Close grip press- 5 sets of 6-8 reps, resting 1 minute between sets.
