Got hit by another cold weather vortex today, but it didn't stop me from opening the garage door during training. I had to, because we have the hook for the TRX there, and it was the only way to get a good triceps exercise in today's garage gym workout. Training was a mini-meathead workout. So much fun. Great pump. It went like this.

1A) KB Clean & Press
1B) Slam Ball Slammin

2A) DB Lateral Raise
2B) Band Pull

3A) TRX Triceps Extension
3B) Powerblocks Palms-Up Curls


That led to a pumped up FB QnA.

Someone asked for the best arm exercise.

There are lots of great arm exercises, but no "best". For triceps, you can do assisted dips on the machine at the gym, close-grip pushups, or lying dumbbell triceps extensions. For biceps, you can do assisted underhand grip chin-ups, palms up dumbbell curls, or palms-up seated incline curls. All of those are great.

Another reader wanted to know how to get back in shape fast.

Research showed that a single 4-minute workout was equal to 30 minutes of cardio. See here
