Triceps Training

No more flabby arms!

Triceps Training - No more flabby arms!
This week is triceps training, my FitnessRx Women! I hear a lot of women complain they don’t want the lower part of the arm (triceps) to wave when they wave goodbye… LOL! While this is partially due to higher body fat, we can mitigate the issue by developing the triceps muscles! Follow this workout for muscle hypertrophy, clean up your diet, and do at least 45 minutes of cardio 5 days a week— then wave goodbye to the “Flabby Arm Wave.”
