    Need a good tricep exercise I can do at home


    I have to do my bench and tricep days at home for the time beings. I'm looking for a good tricep exercise to do here. I can do lying tricep extensions here, at the gym I was doing lying tricep extensions with an ez bar and tricep pulldowns. I have a barbell, two adjustable dumbbells and an ez bar here at the house. So what are my options, dips using the bench? I hate standing tricep extensions with the dumbbells.

    bench dips, close grip bench, close grip push ups, as you said, skull crushers w/ varied grip, dbell kickbacks, one arm overhead dbell extensions, not sure if any of those will bother your wrist or not..

    Your kitchen counter should make a 90 degree angle somewhere like this - |_

    Before I invested in a dip station, I used to do my dips there. I've found that heavy, weighted dips are one of the funnest and best exercises for tricep development. My favorite isolation are tricep extensions.
