    Hey man,

    There are tons of good exercises. My favourites are dips even though it works your chest if you bend forward but bend a little back and it'll work the side of the triceps. Also lift weight behind your head, don't know what that's called. I also do tricep push ups on benches. So much you can do, but the dips will work the sides.

    mine :

    weighted tri dips
    CG bench
    reverse grip tri pushdowns on seated dip machine - try not to activate your traps.
    rope extensions to burn them down and extend the lower tri's to the elbow.

    weighted dips 3 x 5-8
    Reverse Grip Bench 3-8
    Skull Crushers 3 x 10

    Now gather the Vbar,rope, tri pull down straight bars pick 2-3 and start with the heaviest weight u can handle on pulldowns and use the hardest bar.. once u hit failure lower weight and change to easier bar till ur at a really easy weight with the bar u think is the easiest to use and hit 75-100 reps

    u wont be able to take ur shirt of after.

    close grip bench
    dips
    skull crushers
    french press or overheard tricep extension
    underhand tricep extensions

    all of em are deadly. I make sure to do one big movement before all the others such as close grip bench or dips

    A lot of good exercises listed above. Just remember to keep in mind that anytime you do any pressing movement, you're involving the triceps (think about chest and shoulders training). Sometimes less is more and a lot of people may see better results from less direct training. It takes a lot of trail and error. Just throwing that out there!

    decline skull crushers...it keeps your triceps from having a resting point as opposed to flat skull crushers
