    Pick Just One

    If you could only pick one for overall tricep mass and why would you pick that one. The reason for this is today i ran into a guy at Home depot with hugh triceps. He says he only does one exercise for triceps and that's weighted dips. This guy had a set of tri's on him. says he does weighted dips with 150 + lbs hanging from him for sets and reps

    (A) Skullcrusher
    (B) CG Bench
    (C) Weighted Dips

    I didn't make this a poll cause I'm not into them but into ho's

    i like modified skullcrushers with DB's. i incorporate a pullover kind of thing into it, seems to get into long head more. of course i like weighted dips too but cant credit them with making my triceps bigger.

    I think C because you can make subtle adjustments so easily.

    Patrick today i was really tired after a ton of bicep work. So i waited a while and still was weak on the CG Bench. Now i have Elbow and shoulder problems. So i did about 6 set (bodyweight ) only for about 3-4 reps going down about 1/2 way for dips. This seemed to work. I then added some weight and performed 6 reps. did this for 4 more sets and had no problems with elbows or shoulders and went all the way down. . I mean my right shoulder was screaming at first. I found out yesterday that i have a partial torn upper bicep tear. I thought the problem was the cuff but was to close to the front delt. This thing keeps me awake all night long. From the upper bicep all the way over the shoulder. Not sure what exercise i did to fuck this one up.

    Sure will be glad when i finish my see saw dip machine. I should have it done this saturday as tom I drive to Ensenada to buy some more tubing to hold the plates. At least i can start off with a light weight instead of my fatass to warm up the shoulders and elbows. I'll take a pic of what I'm building this weekend and post it.

    what are you going to do for the bicep? Is it completly torn? You may be abel to go to an orthopedist and have them shave out some of the joint to give your muscles more room to move around in there.

    Not sure. my doc is making an appointment now to have an MRI done on it. This thing has been bothering me for 4 months and has now got to the point where if i sleep with the right arm above the head, i wake up sreaming to lower it back down. I thought it was the rotator but just couldn't figure why the pain was all over. I actually think it's two fold. rotator and upper torn bicep. This is bad and today I couldn't do any seated incline db curls. to much pain. Standing was ok. Then i used to much weight for ez bar curls. At least to much for me. I ddi 4 sets of 6 reps with 125 lbs ez bar curls going slow on the down movement. After I was done my delts were shot. i think this is why i had no strength when i tried CG bench for the tri's. I mean I couldn't get 1 rep with 60 lbs less then I normally use for 6 reps.

    well, your bicep is technically part of your shoulder since the long head does cross the shoulder.

    It sounds more like labrum to me though? But, I am not there. You may need to take your stretching more seriously to open up the shoulder capsule and give yourself some breathing room in there. Wait to speak to the Doc though and see what he says to do.

    How did he decide it was your bicep if you had not had a prior MRI?
