The triceps is made up of three parts, hence the “tri”—apologies if this insults your intelligence. The inner side of the muscle that runs down your arm closest to your body is known as the long head, and the lateral and medial heads appear on the outer portion of the arm. These are the parts of the muscle that are most visible when you’re wearing a T-shirt and the two you’ll want to focus on for next summer with this workout.

Our program targets the lateral and medial heads with exercises you’re probably unfamiliar with. This is all the better to encourage growth. The Tate press can also improve your lockout on bench presses, while the underhand kickback provides some extra grip and forearm training.

Perform the exercise pairs (marked “A” and “B”) as supersets. So you’ll do a set of A and then a set of B before resting. Repeat for all the prescribed sets. Exercise 3 is done with conventional straight sets.
