    Oh NO!! You can't do two consecutive direct muscle exercises?!?

    They're almost the same thing.

    Get a better routine.

    1. Your triceps muscles are small and therefore tire easily
    2. As a beginner, you'd be better off sticking to compound lifts tbh

    If you're just starting stop doing so many tricep exercises. In fact don't bother even trying to make your own program, start a proper program like starting strenth: http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wi..._Strength_Wiki

    OR another I've heard good things about which is more of a BB beginner routine: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=4195843

    The thing they both have in common is full body workouts, 3 times a week doing the major core exercises. The second focuses more on increasing reps rather than weight and therefore more hypertrophy, the first on lower rep and strength gains.. So it depends on what you're looking for really.
