    On my press day I had to cut out barbell bench pressing and replace it with dumbell bench press because it agravates my injured shoulder, since then I dont seem to be getting as good of tricep workout as I used to!

    my press day looks like this;

    dumbell flat bench press

    incline dumbell press

    tate press

    weighted dips

    milatary press

    what exercises could I do to get a good tricep workout? thanks

    Your press day has too much pressing.

    Board presses are great for triceps.

    Board presses are bench presses done with boards on your chest. Rather than having the bar come all the way down and touch your chest, it hits the boards instead. The more boards you use the shorter the ROM.

    all those exercises work your tri's to a degree, and the tate presses are a tri specific exercise.

    Yeah i no it just seemed that when I was benching with a barbell I was getting a better tri workout, surpose its because you can't really press the same weight with a dumbell!

    There is also the issue of a different pressing motion. It all depends how you bench with a barbell, but for me, when I use dumbells my press starts higher on my chest, where as when I use a barbell its much lower. That position is altering what muscles are being epmhasized.
     
  9. Try this for Tri's..
    At the very end of your workout do one set of band pressdowns or extensions for 50 reps.
    I'm telling you it will add a ton of strength if you use enough weight that you are really pushing for the last few reps.

    Also, thats a lot of pushing, I wouldn't suggest doing that workout more then once a week. In fact if your goal is strength, that workout plain sucks ass.

    Check out the westside for skinny bastards article. I think that article is dead on target for most people. Add some hardcore GPP on your off days and adjust slightly here and there for your own personnal taste and you end up with a very good program.

    I think jumping jacks will work your quads too. Do them instead of squats.

    No man he is not joking. Jumping jacks are great mass builders for the quads. It is a guarded secret. Try them and se your quads explode!

    No man just kidding. The man that wrote about them initialy I think sarcasticaly responded to the claim that you should use band pressdowns for 50 reps to increase the strength of the triceps.

    A jumping jack is when you stand with your arms to your side, jump out with your arms and legs to create a "standing snow angel", if you get what I mean, or perhaps you just meant that you hadnt heard of jumping jacks for making huge quads? Well that is because jumping jacks dont give you that.. They can be nice for warm ups and conditioning though....;)

    Rack lockouts man or close grip bench press, both great exercises for the tri daddys.
