I have a video of an intense tricep routine you can try. I will send you a PM.

You NEED some sort of lying triceps extension in there (i.e.: skull crusher). The long head of the triceps make up about 1/3 of the overall arm girth. The long head is also not fully recruited during typical pressing exercises as the short and medial heads are. We can talk more about the ins and outs of this, but basically in a successful skull crusher your upper arm will be fixed in place with the shoulder flexed to 90 degrees (i.e.: straight up and down) and the elbows must stay in line with the shoulders the whole time. You can do these with a variety of resistance, barbells, cambered bar, dumbbells, or cables. But, if your goal is big arms, they are a must.

I would only add rolling Tricep extensions, JM press, and close grip press to that list above me

Probably more so than the typical close grip, and I think it is a much more useful movement towards increase bench press...but as far as targeting the long head for hypertrophy purposes, not as much.
