Sleeve-splitting arms aren't made overnight, nor do they happen by accident. 

But with careful attention and targeted exercises—like the ones found in this workout, for starters—your newly-bulging triceps will be tearing t-shirts apart in no time. You may not feel the burn when you take on that first pair of alternating dumbbell floor presses and those dumbbell floor triceps extensions, but by the time you get to the Tate presses and close-grip pushups, we promise: Your muscles will be begging for mercy.


You'll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll do each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've completed all exercises, rest for 30 seconds. Repeat the whole circuit for 5-10 rounds.

Depending on your ability, you may shorten or lengthen the rest period. You may also complete more or fewer rounds.
