    I include numerous exercises. . .

    I like to use a 3 day rotation. . this includes:

    - close grip bench presses
    - wide grip lockouts
    - french presses
    - close grip lockouts
    - parallel dips

    When working triceps, I only choose 1 movement.

    Haha don't ask me, my arms pretty much suck, but I'm relying heavily on skull crushers, behind the head extentions and weighted dips right now.

    Close-grips and dips. They are the best.

    I alternate close grips with extensions. Only one tri exercise per workout. Sometimes I'll throw in some pressdowns at the end to really chase the pump. Few things more physically satisfying than a huge tri pump.

    Personally, the only work my triceps get are from bench presses.

    You do these at the end of your DE or ME upper day? Or otherwise?

    What rep and set scheme do you generally use?


    Thanks,

    I train my tri's pretty hard. Here's what I did the other day and I almost cried when I woke up:

    3 sets each with a pull down warm up set, these are in order:

    1.Cable pull downs w/ rope
    2.Skull Crushers (dumbell with hammer type grip to isolate tri)
    3.Cable overhead extensions
    4.Dumbell Kickbacks
    5.French Press (dumbell)
    6.Cable pull downs (drop set)
    7.Dips (unweighted)

    And I highly recommend not training tri's on the same day as chest. You are robbing yourself there.
