Chest/Triceps Work Out


Below is the chest/triceps work out I did the first month.  As the month progressed my weights increased but the repetitions (“reps” – the number of times you do the exercise) stayed pretty consistent.

FYI – Most of these exercises are meant for a gym work out vs. one that you can do at home with simple weights.   In the coming weeks I will post You Tube videos of the exercises for your reference.

As you can see, the weights are REALLY light because I’m not that strong…yet.

Chest Press Machine, 3 sets, 15 reps, level 2

Freemotion Chest Fly, 3 sets, 15reps, 10 lbs. each rep.

DB (dumbbell) Incline Press, 3 sets, 15 reps, 10 lbs. each rep.

Push ups to fail, 3 times

Triceps Press Down, 3 sets, 10-15 reps, 30-40 lbs. each rep.  (FYI – I usually started with 10 reps and 40 lbs. and by the third set I was tired and was only able to do 10 reps at 30 lbs.)

Skull Crushers, 3 sets, 10-15 reps, 5 lbs. first set, 7.5 lbs. the next two sets
