Weak triceps=weak bench


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Weak triceps=weak bench within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: hey so i tried more weight on the bench, last time i did 115 and was told thats too light, today i did 135 i did one set of five on the flat bench but during my second set i could onlyl get halfway, then my triceps would lock midway, i could hold the weight at that level, just not go anyhigher cuz of my tris, so what should i do? just hope my tris get stronger, or what?

    you could
    a - bench with a weight between 115 and 135, and

    b - do exercises that strengthen your triceps

    Work your tris. JM Presses, rolling extensions, elbows out extensions...work them in the bench plane.

    4/5 board presses have worked wonders for me.

    Kakarat, you might see more carryover if you choose tricep work that's actually in the bench plane, like JM Presses.

    I agree. My triceps are either 1. super weak or 2. my shoulder is effecting my bench more than I think.

    My bench is a paultry 325 right now... which really sucks as I'm 240. It SHOULD be 480. I'm workin on the tricep thing, it seems to be helping.

    I'd definatly hit the tris... close grip bench... I think things called "tates" I hvae used them a couple times... and they seemed to hit my tris hard.
