Comments:

* My goal was to try for three reps but I yet fell short of this goal. I might lay this exercise to rest for awhile and continue with high volume training for awhile instead before making another attempt.

** The weight I chose for this exercise wasn’t appropriate for the french press and I didn’t even feel a burn in the triceps. I will change this superset to alternating dumbbell curl and french press the next workout.

*** I already include an overhead extension in my workout so I am going to switch to overhead dumbbell triceps extensions to triceps kickback. I am just getting back into supersets and may have to experiment a few times until I find the right combinations.

I am also doing to add a fourth superset for the forearms combining reverse barbell curl and wrist curl together.
