    How do I hit the inner tricep?


    Hello,
    I was wondering how do I hit the part between the lateral and the long head of the tricep muscle?
    I want to make my lateral and long head come out more?
    I currently do French presses, pushdowns, close grip bench press?
    Thanks for the input!

    single or double arm dumbell extensions, preferably seated on a swiss ball. its really impressive, when you start using 80 and 100 pound dumbells, theres also a tricep extension bar that will emphasize that, use constant tension never fully extending, lift safe.

    Dips and narrow grip benching are both good ideas. I'm a big fan of J-Presses, but you should also look into Skullcrushers and what Knowbull recommended. I'd say start with the extensions on a bench, and after you get a good feel for the exercise you could switch over to a swiss ball if that appeals to you. You'll be able to move more weight the more stable you are...so don't neglect your core!
    Go hard. Go heavy. Never stop.

    learn to diet. seeing a muscle is as much making it larger as reducing bodyfat.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.
