    Reverse Close-Grip Presses.

    Or Kick backs and Press downs.

    Ive never really seemed results skull crusher, most people love em though.

    Aside from close grip?

    erm.. skullcrushers and tricep dips (i.e. off a bench with plates in your lap)

    CG bench, skull crushers, dips.

    I also like to do alot of overhead extensions, but these I don't feel work as well. I mostly just use them as a final depletion type lift for my triceps.

    I think its person dependant.. for me its always been CG, Dips (if you do them right) and Skulls. I cant do dips because of a shoulder injury, so now its CG and lying tricep extentions. I think if you do them right, any tricep ex can have great results.

    Pushdowns by far are the most effective for me..

    Dips are great too..

    I get fatigued on them very quickly, but I don't think they build any real strength (at least for me). My tricep work is limited to cg bench, dips, and overhead extensions now, and they're stronger and thicker than ever. But I have the strength of an 11 year old girl, so I don't know if that counts...

    not including close grip, db floor press and overhead extensions. I actually lost size when I was doing a lot of board pressing

    Yeah what sucks is I can't do heavy skullcrushers or overhead extensions without fucking my elbows up from hurting them last time.

    Just do all of the tri exercises mentiones here... you will be feeling it!

    Personally I do tri-extensions, skull crushers, and then nd either dips or push-downs.
