Ok guys. There are lots of great pointers on bicep training but with tricep making up 2/3 of the arm mass, anyone care to share their tricep workouts? My tricep simply kill my overall physique!
Any tricep shockers and wokouts be greatly aprpeciated.
I switch things up with high reps, sometimes low strict reps..
Done it all including heavy close grips, cable pull downs, over head dumbell extensions, weighted dips! Just nothing works again to build my triceps into horse shoes! UGH!

heavy incline skullcrushers, one arm reverse cable pressdowns, close grip bench = helluva tricep workout

1. parallel dips
2. incline or flat bench skulls
3. straight bar tri. ext's
4. close grip DROP SET
i put on 5 10's each side and do 10 reps= 1 sets
strip a 10 each side (4 10's for you meatheads)= 2 sets
strip 10's down til its just the bar (it feels like 200 lbs) and do as many reps as possible
so thats 6 sets of close grip wit no break, DONT CHEAT and ur arms will b huuuuurtin

Flat or Decline Lying Extensions
If you want to do a drop set, then the pressdowns are ideal.

CG Bench Press
Skull Crusher/ Nose Breakers
Those are all the ones I do. I mostly train for strength, but triceps are my strongest bodypart, beside quads.

FB Skull Crushers 4 x 10
Rope Press Down 4 x 10 clean and extend the ropes at bottom
Dips 4 x failure
Hammer strength Press down for Mass 4 failure
They will feel like they are going to explode when done

most people have well developed triceps - the problem is the back part of the horseshoe i'm guessing (since that's most people's lagging area). to target that, i don't know the term (methinks blasters), but will call it a "W" bar, since thats what it resembles. use the tricep pull down machine, attach the "W" bar, grab the outer parts ( \ and / ) with an underhand grip, and pick a weight that works for you. you should feel it real quick.
dips 3x10 unweighted
blasters 4x10 80 lbs
skullcrushers 4x10 95 lbs (overhand grip)
tricep rope pushdown 1x?? 80 lbs till failure
