    I only use skull crushers or JM press.

    My triceps are pretty damn weak too...JM press is less than 1/2 my bench press and I always get stuck 1/2 way up on bench press (I obviously never worked triceps heavy enough previously).

    Weighted dips, CG Bench, Tate Press, Over-head DB Extentions, Reverse-grip pulldowns are all I've really done for triceps (switched up of course), and my triceps have come along very well.

    thanks for the replies... but what I was really look for was... how do you isolate say.... the outer head (horse shoe), long head... the upper part/back part where it separates from the rear delts... the incertion I guess it's call... that's my weakness... I can never get a really nice separation of the upper tricep and rear delts...

    i dunno that you can isolate and work one portion w/o working the other. i'm probably wrong though.

    triceps really aren't used for much anyways. if you want big arms, do curls. If you want a big bench, just do flies. If you want big triceps, just do squats


    There are a billion tricep movements and most of them hit the different heads in some degree. Just mix it up. If you're training your triceps because you're super cut and you need more definition in the medial head, you shouldn't be having to ask this anyways. Chances are just focus on the movements everyone suggested here and you'll be fine.

    Close Grip bench @ 8-12 reps SEEMS to have made the most difference in my severly lacking tri's within the shortest amount of time.

    Don't hate on the kickbacks. My bro has 18inch arms at 19years old and he has kickbacks in his routine. Now whether they are actually doing anything I have no idea. He's around 180lbs right now.

    Kickbacks are about the lamest tricep exercise.

    Triceps are VERY important to a boxer.

    They have a marked effect on punching power (depending on how and what is thrown)

    Good advice in here. My KM instructor advised me to follow some of these methods.

    Dips are the best imo.

    Thanks again for all the replies... I'll try some of them... but I can tell you guys right now... the last time I tried doing close grip bench... it killed my elbow joints! But then again... I used the typical straight bar... maybe I might have to use the french curl bar...
