Since your primary focus needs to be on lifting heavy, keep your rep range low, like 6-to-10. Because you’re cutting isolation movements anyway, you won’t need to spend 10-to-15 reps on your triceps. Lift big, lift heavy.
Because you’re lifting such heavy weight, extend your rest periods to regain maximum strength. If you’re used to 30 seconds of rest, I’ve got news for you – longer rest means more strength per set, which leads to weight, more reps at that weight, better total growth. Try for two-to-three minutes between sets.
If you force yourself perform another set before you’re recovered, you won’t see optimal progress. Allow the body the time it needs to recover.
