Sounds like tendonitis...thought about getting Fat Gripz and maybe doing some Zottman Curls to help with it? I have heard people alleviate their tendonitis like this at times>SNS-Glycophase<Serious Nutrition Solutions Rep

try doing them off of an incline or a decline board. its not quite as painful on a decline for me. also, make sure you're not locking your elbows, i caught my self doing that and it made it hurt 10 times worse. also try wrapping them up. i put a tight wrap/sleeve on and it helps a good bit.I'm just a dude chasing a dream

Isolation movements kill my joints. Close grip BP's also work well as a mass builder.

Then avoid them, at least until you work out what the problem is. Pain should never be "worked through", especially if its joint based.

Ever tried doing them with dumbbells? Or set the cable pulley high and face away from it and you can do cable skullcrushers. Both feel a lot better for me. I cant even play with bar skullcrushers or overhead extensions with a bar without my elbows wanting to explode. I usually just do dips tho.

Lying tri extensions are very overrated IMO. I have the same pain, and I actually have stopped doing that workout for at least a year now and still developing my triceps nicely.Originally Posted by DerickVonD
I would say skip the movement and try out press downs, dips, and close grip smith press (done at the end to go lighter and stave off elbow pain).
