Partner or Solo Chest and Triceps

For the past few months Brian has been making the early morning trip with me to the gym, and I have absolutely LOVED it!

Boy, is it great to have a workout partner who is there with you every step of the way!

Even though it is great having someone at the gym with me, I still felt as if we were hitting a workout rut a couple of weeks ago.  I hadn’t changed up our schedule in a while, I needed to write some new workouts, and we really just needed a change.  It was easy to put creating new workouts on the back burner when there were a million other things that were coming up higher on the priority list.

Finally, I just bit the bullet, sat down, and jotted down a couple of quick exercise routines focusing on supersets to save time and create efficiency in our workouts.

The first of our “new workouts” that we completed was the chest and triceps superset routine.

Chest Triceps Supersets

This workout is perfect to complete with a partner.  When completing the supersets, I always have Brian start on one exercise while I start on the other.  We begin at the same time and switch machines once we are done with 10-12 reps to complete the rest of the superset.  I think that it keeps things interesting, and it definitely makes the workout feel fast paced.  Sometimes, it can get a little boring while you are waiting for your partner to complete his/her reps.  This workout completely solves that problem.

Not to worry! Even if you don’t have a partner, you can definitely complete this workout solo!  🙂
