PH3: Layne Norton's Power And Hypertrophy Trainer, Day 16

I hope you don't mind pumped biceps and triceps, because you're going to walk out of the gym with some serious guns today!

While yesterday was all about the big three lifts, today's workout will focus on accessory exercises. A well-rounded physique requires that you hit every muscle in your body—and that's where accessory moves come in.

Blood-flow restriction will leave you with a massive arm pump at the end of this workout, so don't wear your favorite gym shirt; you might rip the sleeves!
