I have been doing Tricep pulldowns using the cable machine, but I have heard it is better for you to try and do as much with free weights and dumbbells as opposed to machines and cables to get bigger.
What do you recommend for triceps then ? Thanks
Close grip bench and dips

Lots and lots of heavy pressing.
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

Skull crushers are good if they don't bother your elbows. Seems like a lot folks say it hurts there elbows.
Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold
