“This one was more painful than anticipated. Per the usual, the first half of my workout involved heavy straight sets, attempting to beat my previous week (with ... increased load and/or better execution), followed by this, something a little more "metabolic" based. For this portion of the workout my exercise selection is based around wanting things as dense as possible (a lot of work, in little time), while attempting to maintain relatively heavy loads. IMO Mechanical drop sets accomplish this best.
The first position (kneeling) overloads the triceps near full extension, the second position (standing) overloads the triceps in a more elbow flexed position (where they are stronger). I cross the cables to better align the force with my elbows (or to look cool for Instagram...not sure which). And the pad is for my knees which are delicate, because I don't spend as much time on them as some of y'all do in your free time (Zing!)
This one is legit though, give it a go next arm day where appropriate within your programming. Your horseshoes will thank me. And TAG someone to join next arm day fun. Or tag someone that doesn't need the pad, because their knees are "conditioned". And let them guess why they are tagged.”
