    Try this: in a standing position, flex your tricep as hard as you can by your side, hold and squeeze. Now, with it still contracted move your arm as far as you can behind you and feel the contraction intensify. Then move it back down and you will feel the contraction unintensify.

    So with Kickbacks I only bend over 45 degrees. However I still put my tricep parallel to the floor. This helps achieve that contraction.
    I see what you are saying. The reason for that is because of reciprical inhibition via the biceps, which gets stretched when the shoulder is hyper-extended. But I'm not sure how much it would actually effect muscular recruitment of the short and medial head of the triceps which do not cross the shoulder joint.

    I see it as a good way to isolate the tricep and make it contract harder than usual. Its not a main exersise due to the light weight having to be lifted, But its a good high rep set for the end every now and then.

    haha this

  5. I'm not a fan for me because I tend to cheat if I try to do them. I prefer DB skulls or a similar extension from the floor

  6. weighted close grip pushups are a killer if you do them right, or weighted seated dips,i know this may sound crazy but i get an awesome pump from both of those

  7. Outside of pressing and push ups, my choice for tricep accessory is supine pull over and press. The pull over works the long head (crosses the shoulder) and then you have the press as well. I'm more in this game for function and performance though so I don't often use isolation exercises beyond addressing weak point

    Lold irl. On topic, close grip bench is my favorite tricep exercise and seems the most effective.

  12. Rope extensions are another one that i like
