TRICEPS EXTENSIONS: The second half of Correa’s arm routine is paired with shoulders, so his triceps are already warmed up by the time he gets to the first movement. By doing triceps extensions first, Correa has a multitude of options—using a dumbbell, straight bar, or EZ bar; and doing them seated, standing, or prone.
CLOSE-GRIP BENCH PRESS: A great exercise to build mass is also the one where Correa uses more than 250 pounds to do three sets of 10 reps. The extra weight gives him the added resistance needed to bring out his tri’s even more in this compound movement.
SINGLE-ARM CABLE PUSHDOWN: An isolation movement that involves a long range of motion is next for Correa. People sometimes overlook these, but they can be done palms up or palms down to give them a kickback feel.
DIPS: These are great even when done with just your own body weight, but Correa chooses to add more than 200 extra pounds to complete his triceps in style. He will push it to the limit by performing two sets of 15–20 reps, and he goes down deep on every rep.
