Favorite Exercises for Tri Development?

Forcibly pronating your hand when your doing a tricep exercise is supposed to target the outer portion of the muscle. You might be able to add some width by concentrating on the outer portion if you don't already. Cable tricep push-downs with a rope are good for this.
I've read that doing dips with your palms facing outward is supposed to help with the outer portion of the muscle as well. However, this one sounds very painful and awkward. Can't imagine it would be good on the shoulders

Shxt! I got options!
Thanks guys! I tried to do a variation of the JM press with DB at home tonight and i actually really liked it, would liked to try it with a BB
im thinking about trying the push and pull tri superset idea, ive always done opposite body part supersets chest/bi's back/tris so ill have to try the same body part idea

heavy reverse grip bench presses in a smith machine, and slow negatives on your skullcrushers.

Hawk thanks for sharing the video. I have found that keeping the rope splayed apart has made a big difference for me but i was keeping it apart all the way through the range of motion. One thing that the guy is doing however is holding his shoulders forward and thus putting a lot of upper body weight on the rope. Most can do the whole stack that way. What i have found recently (and this is just probably proper technique to begin with) is to keep the shoulders back throughout the whole range. The weight came way down but i get the best pump ever on these. I can feel the whole back of the arm swell, right up to the elbow. I still arch my shoulders forward and do the stack for variation sometimes but this one i feel works best for me and everyone iv'e introduced to it says the same.

Hawk thanks for the reps and i just got back from trying this out at the gym. It really rocks the medial head but you can feel it everywhere in the long and lateral heads too. It really made me feel like every other tricep workout i have ever done has been a waste.
Highly recommend this

Oh, I totally forgot about close grip decline bench. I do it with two fingers outside the outer gritting (so two fingers between the outer gritting and the middle gritting on the barbell) from each hand. It blasts parts of my triceps like nothing else. I've heard it compared to dips, and I can kind of see the comparison, but I don't know.
