There is very likely a machine in your gym that you’ve never tried. It’s usually sitting unoccupied, or perhaps being filled by a middle-aged soccer mom. It has two settings, and can be used quite painfully to add leg definition and mass. Using it feels and often looks awkward, and you will struggle with only a little bit of weight. It’s called the leg abductor/adductor machine. And you should be using it.
With every muscle group in the body, there are two phases you must sequentially complete in order to fully develop the area: Mass and Detailing. For this article, we will focus upon hitting the triceps, and break down the mass and detailing phases and their movements.
Are you a bodybuilder? You certainly look like one. You’re the biggest guy in most rooms you enter. And you certainly eat like one. Everyone knows that when they see you, they’ll usually see you accompanied by a cooler full of protein and a gallon of Crystal Lite. Finally, you train like one. You’re in the gym five days a week. You see the lesser trainers arrive, train, and depart while you’re still working on your first body part. The staff knows you by name, and you’re well aware of the little idiosyncrasies of both the equipment and the other people in the gym. It’s your second home away from home, and you leave everything on that gym floor.
