Mike O’Hearn’s Tricep Variations

Crossover Single-Arm Tricep Extensions

The first of two workouts for Mike O’Hearn and Aleksey Mokshyn begins on the cable machine. The starting position is often seen when training delts but this time, O’Hearn throws in a bit of a wrinkle.

The two can be seen standing straight up with their elbows bent at a 45-degree angle. From here, the arms are straightened out to work the tricep. O’Hearn explains how it is important to perform this exercise while standing straight up as opposed to bent over.

“YOU’RE GOING TO FIND PRESSURE ON THE RACKS ITSELF. THEN YOU FIND OUT THAT SPOT THERE WHERE THE BALANCE IS. YOUR BODY IS BALANCED. IT’S NOT FORCING. FOR ME, I LIKE THAT. I NEVER LIKED DOING CABLE CROSSOVERS WHERE YOU’RE SO LEANED IN THAT YOUR BODY IS HOLDING IT.

IT’S NOT AN INTENSE EXERCISE, A VERY SIMPLEEXERCISN. IT’S A GOOD WARMUP, A GOOD OPENER, A GOOD MIND-TO-MUSCLE CONNECTION TO START THE WORKOUT.”

Skull Crushers/Push-Up Superset

The final exercise of the workout is a superset to hit all areas of the tricep. It begins with a variation of a skull crusher performed on the Smith machine. O’Hearn uses just his bodyweight when performing this exercise lowering his body under the bar and driving it up. From there, the duo goes right into incline push-ups, which are also performed on the Smith machine.

“HE IS DEMANDING HOW MUCH HIS BODY WORKS THROUGHOUT THE WORKOUT. NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.”

Mike O’Hearn remains extremely shredded at 53 years old and it is because of workouts like this one. He has remained an active voice in fitness because of his overall knowledge and passion. From here, continue to follow O’Hearn’s tips and tricks on how to get a better quads and pump in the gym.
