Triceps Exercises Not To Do
I’m going to list three triceps exercises that are not necessarily the most effective. I want to point out however, that the triceps muscle is relatively easy to overload. There is hardly a triceps movement that does not generate sufficient overload for maximum muscle growth if done correctly. Of these three, Dumbbell Kick Backs can certainly generate maximum overload. Only the fact that it is a one arm movement does it get a downgrade.
This a good triceps movement when done correctly. Only drawback is that it is a one arm movement.
Cable Kickbacks do not allow the use maximum overload and is performed one arm at a time. There is not sufficient overload and the one arm approach is inefficient.
Overhead One Arm Dumbbell Extensions
Overhead One Arm Dumbbell Extensions do not allow the use maximum overload and is performed one arm at a time. There is not sufficient overload and the one arm approach is inefficient.
What it boils down to with these movements is the whole “inefficient energy expenditure” problem and the fact that they do not produce maximum overload. Remember, you don’t do an exercise for the sake of doing an exercise. You carefully choose the exercises that will produce the most overload in the least amount of time. That’s what Max-OT does.
