    assuming ur looking for a powerlifting time tricep routine..

    id do

    Reverse Grip, Close Grip, Board Presses as a main movement low rep high weight.. i like to call it tricep strength type of lifts.

    then id do tricep assistance such as skull crushers, rolling tricep extentions, DB extentions, barbell extentions..

    Then do various handles for pulldowns to failure dont try to max out on the pulldowns do 3-5 sets to failure it does wonders for endurance.

    endurance i felt most my gains from pulldowns try starting with reverse grip pulldowns and when that gets hard go overhand. i use to have that problem with my tris would fatigue during my bench workout and alot of pulldowns helped.

    i found workin my TRI's max all the time in the long run about a year later.....My TRI's are in hurt cause i worked them to hard. Take your TRI's slow. and work alot of close trip exercise.....Alot of cats dont realize you constantly work your TRI on every exercise you pushdown on and plenty of other exercises

    close grip brutal beekers, and close grip boards 2 through 6 (4 reps per board and go up 10-15 lbs. per board), those are two great tricep exercises for lockout, and Dave Tate has videos of them on youtube.

    work your tri;s and shoulders on your chest day.

    tricep cable (rope) extentions,

    only lift your forearms to a 90 degree angle and then work them to a 180 degree. keep your elbows in close to your waist the whole time. once you extend your arms, pull the ropes apart.

    Personally I have found that close grip on a decline bench work the best and also dips. Give the close grip decline bench a try....should give great results.

    i do them for 3 sets of 4 to 6 reps. i discovered these because my front delts were getting hammered by bench because i do full ROM coan routine. so i figured for assistance movement id reverse the grip to get stress of the front delts.. and it worked.. then on top of that it takes out ur rotator cuffs beause the floor stops you from doing so.

    if you think about its realtively pain free no front delt or rotator cuff stress you can go heavy and u dont loose out on the main focus of the movement which is to work ur tris which happens half way up so basically if ur reverse gripping full rom the bottom half just hits the shoulders.. im using this for tris so of the floor works wonders... give it a try and deff let me know how u like it.
