On this site you have heard me talking about the forearms a lot and how the forearms are the most important part of the arms for making you look massive; I was wrong. The truth is that if you really want to get a wider/thicker frame while getting rid of your “torso dominant” card then you need to get your tricep long head to a serious size. This muscle will do an AMAZING job at complimenting your lats, upper back, arms and especially your shoulders, its the missing piece of the puzzle for a monstrous physique. Don’t get me wrong, forearms are and will always be badass, but the long head will always be more impressive and important for making you look big as a whole. If you want to know more about the long head then be on the lookout because by the end of summer my SilverBack book should be out which will be talking all about how to develop the essential muscles to look massive and the long head is one of them. In the meantime, I am still gathering more information about it so just stay tuned.
Today I have a special guest that I want to introduce everybody to if you guys don’t already know who this guy is. Poppa Pipes is who I like to call the king of tricep long head development because if you look at his physique you could tell that this part of his triceps is massive and he deserves the attention, the guy trains it like its life itself. Some say that it’s just genetics, but there is more to it than that. You see, Poppa Pipes is known for doing insane overhead extensions with heavy weight with a heavy dumbell to stretch out that long head. In other words, he is really big on overloading and heavy stretching principles which are two things that I’ve been talking about on this site for years. The contraction and squeeze are cool, but I personally feel like the heavy stretch is really what is going to give you the most bang for your buck so you want to put a lot of emphasis on those type of movements if hypertrophy is the goal.
Without further ado, Poppa Pipe is going to answer the most popular long head questions and hopefully you will learn something!
