    I am a firm believer in dips as the best overall tricep movement. Close second for me is close grip bench.

    I was doing close grips on a Smith machine and it kind of hit me. Because of the fixed up and down plane it is more of a JM press. What about Rippetoe style lying tricep extensions?

    Single pulley tricep extensions w/ a rope and close grip dips... My bench press went from 6x315lb to 18x315lb after adding those in after 1yr. My weight at the time was 185lb.

    How would u do close grip dips? And just rope push downs with a rope one arm at a time or above the head?

    Drop sets so you can work past failure and I have had success with supper setting overhand and underhand grips in succession
