    Need a better tricep workout


    I do 8x2 overhead tricep extentions(first with 26kg and then 20kg) then I do 8x2 skull crushers with 24kg and then 20kg and to finish I do 28bench dips

    I know I don't lift much but I'd like bigger triceps near the elbow part, how can I focus on that area?

    Try this routine:

    Close grip bench press-4 pyramided sets of 8-10 reps
    (e.g. 10x95 10x135 10x185 8x225)

    Overhead Tricep Extensions-3 sets of 10 reps

    Tricep Pushdown-2 sets of 10 reps

    The way to focus on that part of the triceps is to do reverse grip push downs (pull downs). But its not a good overall mass building, so I do it last in my triceps routine.
