The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    anything where you use heavy weight.
    I nominate: dips, close grip bench press, skulls, and powerlifting-style dumbell tricep kickbacks - oops sorry that last one is a girls exercise.

    Pretty much I think most people got the right idea. The exercises that let you use the most weight combined w/a bit of isolation to finish off is the way to go. My personal favorites; Close Grip Press, Triceps Dips and Slight Decline Skull Crushers

    Kickbacks, bench dips, and ............. oops, that's my girlfriend's routine.

    Close Grip Bench, Skulls, Parallel Weighted Dips

    Berzerker - do the decline skulls work well? I never thought of that.

    Otter: Yeah, I seem to get more of a range of motion with Skull Crushers on a decline of about 30 degrees. Done on a flat bench I only feel tension about 20 degrees of the range of motion. There's "dead space" near lockout and at the whole bottom third of the range of motion when using a flat bench. Decline Skull Crushers I get about a lot better feel from.
