YAXENIS TRIS

2 shared this

She turned 44 last September, and 2010 was her seventeenth year competing in the IFBB Pro League, and yet last year was one of the best for the Venezuelan-born Yaxeni Oriquen-Garcia. She won the Phoenix Pro and finished second to the incomparable Iris Kyle in both the Ms. International and Ms. Olympia. Now as she prepares for her eighteenth year as a pro (holy crap!) and, on March 5, her fourteenth Ms. International (holy crap!), this winner of the 2005 Ms. Olympia and 2008 Ms. International, serves up some tri tips and a typical triceps routine.

YAXENI’S TRI TIPS

  • “For a maximum pump, keep rest between sets to less than one minute and do reps in the 15-25 range.”
  • “Despite doing relatively high reps, always use the heaviest weight possible.”
  • “To better bring out the shape and details of the triceps, I do only high-rep cable exercises before contests.”

ORIQUEN’S TRICEPS ROUTINE

EXERCISE SETS REPS
Lying triceps extensions 4 12-15
Overhead barbell extensions 4 15-20
Pushdowns 5 20-25
