How to Bring Up Lagging Exercises or Muscle Groups

Do you have a lagging muscle group or are you struggling with an exercise? There is one way to handle the situation - prioritize. You have to make a priority of working that area. How do you do that? Here is an example of a weekly routine with the triceps as the target for improvement.

1st Workout - Triceps

  • Close Grip Bench Press
  • Seated Behind the Head press
  • Skull Crushers
  • Rope Extensions

2nd Workout

  • Legs
  • Back

3rd Workout

  • Chest
  • Shoulders
  • Biceps

4th workout

  • Triceps again.

By targeting the triceps twice you give them an extra shock and get them growing and making gains. The triceps are used here as an example - you can plug any muscle group in, or any exercise. If you lag in the behind the head press, you can double up on it as well. And when you bring that muscle group or exercise out of the shadows and make it a priority, it will grow. Arnold did this with his calves, and they took off strongly. You can get it going as well in whatever area you choose.
