Chest & Triceps Workout (VIDEO)

The moves from this classic, heavy-hitting chest and triceps workout are very much in my current rotation these days. I’m loving using simple, tried-and-true exercises that have been proven over time to be the most effective movements to put on muscle and get stronger in these areas (if it worked for Schwarzenneger, it’ll work for me). This workout is set up in mini circuits, with each circuit containing a chest and a triceps exercise. Fair warning: by the end of the first circuit (bench presses and heavy skull crushers) my arms were already shaking! Push through and you might actually feel stronger as the routine progresses! I hope you guys get as good a workout from these movements as I’ve been getting.

Enjoy this workout, and watch out for those diamond push-ups!

P.S. HOW CUTE is my new active wear from Lorna Jane?! I’m SO excited to have been invited to join their Active Elite program and now I get to share how much I freakin’ love these clothes with all of you! The leggings are like a second skin (so comfy, and not see-through at ALL so you can squat with confidence!), and the sports bras are quite literally cuter than half the actual shirts in my closet. I’ve linked my outfit here {sports bra} and here {leggings} and if you’re a first time shopper clickin’ those links, you’ll get a 20% discount on your purchase of a full-price item! Happy shopping!
