    If you want a big tricep of equal proportions you should each work them separately try it i can do 60lbs behind my neck with one hand. Great pump. Over head Dumbbell builds the horse shoe.

    I agree, and I always mix them in, but i just love pushing down some big weight or using a rope and stretching the contraction at the bottom...

    hell yeah pushdown are usually my first and last exercise. I like the small angle bar then at the end do a reverse grip short bar burn out set.

    for me its the following

    1) Weighted Dips
    2) Heavy benching
    3) Close grip bench press
    4) Tricep rope pushdowns

    I think benching is a great way to develop the triceps but as far as isolation goes...

    Big fan of tricep rope pushdowns, for me they do wonders (all our bodies respond in a unique way!)
    Also skull crusher/dips/close grip bench are in my typical tricep routine

    I actually like close grip rack shoulder presses. I read about poliquin using these and so I tried them. I really needed a way to hit the long head and exercises above the shoulder really do a great job of it (and allows me to use a lot more weight vs. extensions). It's really most effective for me if the elbows are kept back in line with the head and shoulders...

    Skull crushers on a slight decline, close grip and reverse grip bench work best for me

    Weighted dips are it for me. Lends an amazing pump that always jumps starts my tri day.

    Really getting into JM Presses for triceps (they kick the hell out of skull crushers or CGP's).

    Description starts several mins into the following vid (after some monster bench pressing!) http://www.powerliftingwatch.com/node/5175
