depends on which head you are working out. basically, tri means three, so there are three different equally good tricep mass builders, and the part of the tricep worked depends only on your hand position - overhand, underhand, and parallel

weighted dips...close grip bench press...french press...

Wide reversed grip bench press...decline BB skull crushers...and weighted dips...my 3 favorite
Suncloud, I have a really bad wrist, also, but reversed grip bench press doesn't hurt too too bad, just don't go extremely heavy. Just use strict form and totally focus on the triceps...that's what I do. Clean and presses absolutely crush my wrist...I just did them today, and I'm hating myself for it.

CG bench, rev grip bench, pullovers, dips and floor presses are my favorite.

Floor Press with slightly with shoulder-width (or slightly wider) grip. Limit ROM to where humerus and forearm make a 90 degree angle.

work up to a ORM for floor bench
sets of 5,5,3 on rev grip bench
Pullover with 3 sets of 10 use 25,35,45 and do em of the floor for different angles of the tri gettin hit
and burnout with dips it use to always shoot uup my bench.

Close grip bench and skull crushers are the best for mass.
kickbacks good for the horseshoe

I've been doing kickbacks lately to finish off my tri's. OMG do they burnout your tri's.

Another vote for CG Bench and RG Bench. I like skullz too. Pushdowns would be 4th on the list.

2 quick noob questions:
My google searches have been ambiguous... is the correct "french press" either sitting/standing and doing a tricep extension overhead?
I do not use dips at all in my routine, and I feel like i should. Assuming you train tris the day after chest, how do you guys fit them in?
02-18-2009, 12:09 PM
I don't do any kickbacks... Too much stress on my shoulders with heavy weights and it fatigues faster than my tricep will.
Half the exercises I don't know what they're called lol... Just call em what they seem to be doing.
02-18-2009, 12:12 PM
my vote is for close grip or weighted dips. Dips is such a solid fundamental exercise for other parts as well
