Filling Out a Tall Frame

Here’s how tall guys can blow up triceps and biceps for maximum mass.



Execute them with two hands on a straight-bar attachment or one at a time with a D-handle; both ways activate the medial head.


Finish up using the FST-7 dictum of seven sets of 10 to 12 reps with a 45-second rest between each set to force an ever-larger volume of liquid into the muscle as the sets advance. Choose a weight that offers a challenge in the 10- to 12-rep range but doesn’t cause you to fail on the first few sets. It’s OK if you fail to reach 12 on the final few sets as long as you’re pushing yourself as hard as possible.
