ARM DAY: favorite day

hey guys! I love when I’m home because I get to have a workout partner! Yesterday we crushed arms. Mackenzie always loves going hard for arms and that inspires me to put in the same amount of work as her. 

Here was my workout for the day 

BICEPS:

  • 3 sets// 8 reps of super sets: Hammer Curls & Seated Dumbell Curls
  • 3 sets// 12, 8, 6 reps of pyramid sets: Rope Cable Curls
  • 3 sets// 8 reps of regular sets: Overhead Cable Curls
  • 1 set// burnout reps: Straight Bar Cable Curls

TRICEPS: 

  • 3 sets// 8 reps of regular sets: Rope Tricep Pushdown 
  • 3 sets// 12, 8, 6 of pyramid sets: Straight Bar Tricep Pushdowns 
  • 3 sets// 8 reps of regular sets: Dumbbell Tricep Kickbacks 

Here’s a photo of my arm pump right after my workout! 

*Reminder* 

a superset is when you do one set of workout A then a set of workout B right after, instead of 3 sets of workout A then 3 sets of workout B

A pyramid is more reps of a lower weight, immediately increasing the weight and lowering the reps then increasing again as well as lowering. Ex: 12 reps of 10lbs, 8 reps of 15 lbs, 6 reps of 25 lbs. this all counts as one set

A burnout is when you rep till failure or till you basically feel like you can out do another PROPER rep
