Hey Anabolic Doc, what’s up, my man? I loved the interview series that you did and it kicked ass! Now in your first column here you mentioned you would be giving us some of your secret powerlifting training tips, too. My question is about improving my triceps strength and power.

My bench press sucks and I can barely get one rep with 275. I have been training for six years and I know it has to do with my weak triceps.

Thanks again for such a great interview and I look forward to more of your work in Muscular Development.
