Ok. I love this program. I wish I could have been a part of helping test it. But I have a question.

Exercise 1 (upper left) 'Overhead Triceps extensions". The illustration looks like 2 arm tricep extensions are intended, but I could be wrong about that. The profile orientation makes it difficult to see.

Exercise 2 (upper right) "triceps extensions" shows single arm extensions with text 5-7 reps per arm per set. Cool.

Two tricep extensions back to back?


Triceps extensions are a tricky exercise. Either they can really work the tricep (if done correctly) or not work it much at all (if the person recruits the biceps and shoulder girdle). They have to be done slowly and with intention and focus.

I think more "recovery time" between the two triceps extensions exercises would be effective. I'd submit going upper left, lower left, lower right, upper right as the sequence.
