If skulls hurt your elbows, u have to drop the bar farther over your head instead of right over your head. Just means you have longass forearms

Hands down best two tricep exercises are close grip bench with good form and weighted dips with elbows tucked in. Work your way up in some weight on these and watch those guns grow. Honestly I have gotten some great results doing tucked in elbow pushups with strict form and really focusing on the lockout. Good luck buddy

Some people have problems with any tricep extension exercise. It's actually one of the benefits of the JM press is you can still have that sort of movement, but it usually wont bother people with those problems. I don't know why they have them in the first place, though.

I would suggest a couple of others but since you only have a flat bench you can just fool with those for a while. If you have dumbbells you have some more options, too, like skullcrushers and Tate presses.

I feel like if an exercise is hurting you, your form is off or your using too much weight. Skull crushers target the whole head of the triceps and are prob the best imo. Dips are awesome too but your using accessory muscles as well doing dips. No doubt they are still awesome.
Heavy bench should also trash your tri's so I would do tri's on chest day. If you bigger tri's you have to push the weight. I would superset skulls with diamond pushups. Weighted dips are also a must.
Cant go wrong with skulls and dips. If skulls **** up your elbow, just do heavy dips man

I'm going with reverse grip bench press. You do not have to use a super close grip or a wide one. Your elbows will stay tucked throughout the whole movement which is key for tricep involvement. If you do them on a bench, start out light ad get used to unracking it which is awkward unless you get a lift.

A regular close grip bench press is also very effective and is safer than a super close grip. It also allows for more weight.

Skull crusher(lying triceps extensions using a barbel) is THE best exercise for ur triceps and is indispensable!It is one of the few exercises that adds mass to your triceps.Other than this one could also do the seated French Press and triceps push down on the cable using a D-Handle on the cable for that horse shoe effect!!
