    You're doing the correct exercises, ie pushdowns and close grips. If you're doing all of the above mentioned movements, it may be as simple as too much volume. I only train triceps on their own about twice a month. They get plenty of work benching and w OHP's.

    Maybe just narrow it down to a couple movements, that should be easier on your elbows.

    Good luck...

    Throw in triangle pushups. Study showed it's effective for contracting all heads equally and most effectively. Study was done by ACE.

    instead of exercises look for rep/set/intensity setups that will help. try 1-2 days a week doing 50-100 total reps (as many sets as needed) at 30-40% of your max as more of an active recovery.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Band ext and band pushdowns help me avoid elbow pain.

    Use Fat Gripz on the lifts that give you pain.
