Thanks for that man.

Going to incorporate some of those into my routine and try and go harder.

Also, is doing triceps twice a week too much? I do them currently on the same day that I do chest but I'm thinking whether or not to do them twice because my triceps are lacking a lot compared to my triceps.

i can easily do 3 sets of 20 dips but im no gym guru so forgive my terminology

but if these are a problem there are several exercises you can do which work triceps such as close grip pressups,pressups in general, the dips off a bench, lifting a dumbell overhead whilst supporting the tricep with the other arm...

edit or as seen in some videos above

also dips does not isolate the triceps so a certain amount of mechanical capability in other areas and especially pectoral muscles is necessary. this is why the pecs and triceps are grouped together because several exercises have a mutual reliance. pulldowns are great for isolating triceps though

also height has nothing to do with it, maybe the 6 5 guy had focused on other body parts

also em dott you will have to clarify where you mean to say biceps in that sentence. twice a week is not too much but i suppose it depends on wht yr program is, also triceps should be stronger than biceps,but thats partly imo

along with push ups... Don't worry about what weight you can do etc etc just get the technique right first

I tend to find the EZ bar helps even out the weight for both arms for me.

I do both.
