    If you find that you use your chest too much in CGBP try supinating your grip and you will find that it naturally forces you elbows closer to your sides and puts a lot more emphasis on the tris.

    Being that I'm not strong enough to bend the bar, it's difficult supinating grip with a barbell.. lol..

    on a side note, I know what you mean. I actually have my hands at almost a 45 degree angle to the bar focing my elbows in closer.. seems to put more emphasis on the triceps but still a bit on the chest.

    take 2, 3 or 4 2x4's and nail/glue them together so they're either 4, 6 or 8 inches high. Place it on your chest and when benching, touch the boards and go. It restricts full ROM and pectoral usage which in turn annihilates your triceps.

    definitely gonna have to give tricep kickbacks the easy win on this question.

    everyone who thinks ANY other tricep workout is better, then they clearly have no idea what they are talking about...

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
