View Full Version : How many sets should I do for triceps

I train triceps on chest day and am wondering how many sets I should do. Is four different exercises of three sets each needed after I just did flat, incline, decline bench presses and butterflies for my chest. I do not want to over work my tri's and do not want to waste time if not needed.

Your tricep is 2/3rds of your arm. So I'd tell you to at least do twice as much volume as you dedicate to your biceps each week. For myself, I train triceps twice a week. And I do 8 sets of 8 reps one day, and 8 sets of 8 reps, and 3 sets of 6 reps another day, and I've seen great gains.
